The Old Lamplighter
recorded by Jim Ed Brown
written by Charles Tobias and Nat Simon
 
C           F              C
He made the night a little brighter
    E7            Am
Wherever he would go
    F        C                D7   G7
The old lamp lighter  of long long ago
          F                C
His snowy hair was so much whiter
  E7               Am       F        C
Beneath the candle glow the old lamp lighter
        G7   C
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
              F
If there were sweethearts in the park
 
He'd pass a lamp and leave it dark
                                 G7
Remembering the days that used to be
       C
For he recalled when things were new
        
He loved someone who loved him too
                   G7       C
Who walks with him alone in memories
 
            F              C
He made the night a little brighter
    E7            Am
Wherever he would go
    F        C               G7   C
The old lamp lighter 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
              F
He turns them on when night is near
             
He turns them off when dawn is here
                                 G7
The little man who lived so long ago
 
            F              C
He made the night a little brighter
    E7            Am
Wherever he would go
    F        C               G7   C
The old lamp lighter of long long ago
