The Old Lamplighter

He made the night a little brighter
Wherever he would go
The old lamplighter
Of long, long ago.

His snowy hair was so much whiter
Beneath the candle glow
The old lamplighter
Of long, long ago

You'd hear the patter of his feet
As he came toddling down the street
His smile would hide a lonely heart you see
If there were sweethearts in the park
He'd pass a lamp and leave it dark
Remembering the days that used to be.

For he recalled when things were new
He loved someone who loved him too
Who walks with him alone in memory
He made the night a little brighter
Wherever he would go
The old lamplighter of long, long ago.

Now if you look up in the sky
You'll understand the reason why
The little stars at night are all aglow
He turns them on when night is here
He turns them off when dawn is near
The little man we loved of long ago.

He made the night a little brighter
Wherever he would go
The old lamplighter of long, long ago


The music was written by Nat Simon, the lyrics by Charles Tobias.
The song was published in 1946.
Several versions of the song made the best-seller charts in 1946-1947
Later it was a major country-pop hit for The Browns (C)
The single was released in March of 1960, and went on to become a major top-ten hit on the US pop singles charts,
peaking at #5, as well as on the country charts.
