Old Lamp Lighter
The Browns 1946
  (Riverboat 672)   Elmer Sheffield, Jr., Ken Bower

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
*You'd hear the patter of his feet as he came toddling down the street
His smile would cheer a lonely heart, you see

Left allemande the corner, turn partner by the right
Left allemande and weave around the ring
He made the night a little brighter
Swing and you promenade
The old lamp lighter of long, long ago


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Now if you look up in the sky, you'll understand the reason why
The little stars at night are all aglow


*If there were sweethearts in the park, he'd pass a lamp and leave it dark
Remembering the days that used to be


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads you promenade and take 'em half around that ring
Side couples star thru for me, pass thru
You star thru again, then a right & left thru my friend
Load the boat across the ring you know
He made the night a little brighter
Swing and you promenade
The old lamp lighter of long, long ago


TAG

Of long, long ago
