The Old Lamplighter:The Browns.
#5 in '60.

CHORUS:
G                          D
He made the night a little brighter,
    F#            Bm
Wherever he would go.
    G        D        G  D          A7
The old lamp lighter, of long, long ago.
          G                D
His snowy hair was so much whiter,
  F#               Bm        G        D
Beneath the candle glow, the old lamp lighter,
G  D     A7   D
Of long, long ago.

#1.
D              G             D          
You'd hear the patter of his feet,
D                   G        D
As he came toddling down the street.
D                      G                 D
His smile would hide a lonely heart, you see.
D             Em                 Em7
If there were sweethearts in the park,
            Em                Em7
He'd pass a lamp and leave it dark.
  Em            Em7               A7
Remembering the days that used to be.
         D                       D7
For he recalled when things were new.
             D                 D7
He loved someone who loved him too.
    D               A7        D
Who walks with him alone in memories.

CHORUS:

#2.
D          G              D
Now if you look up in the sky,
D                     G      D
You'll understand the reason why,
D                   G             D
The little stars at night are all aglow.
              Em               Em7
He turns them on when night is near,
              Em               Em7
He turns them off when dawn is here.
    D              A7            D
The little man who lived so long ago.

CHORUS:

ADD:
G                          D
He made the night a little brighter,
    F#            Bm
Wherever he would go.
    G        D       G  D          A  D
The old lamp lighter of long, long a..go. 


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
