Cue Sheet

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

The Old Lamplighter Lyrics ID: 174

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 recalls when dreams 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
His snowy hair was so much whiter
Beneath the candle glow
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

Composed by Nat Simon.
Lyrics by Charles Tobias.
Recorded by The Browns.
