Jim Ed Brown performs "Old Lamplighter"

James Edward Brown (April 1, 1934 – June 11, 2015) was an American country singer-songwriter who achieved fame in the 1950s with his two sisters as a member of the Browns. He later had a successful solo career from 1965 to 1974, followed by a string of major duet hits with fellow country music vocalist Helen Cornelius, through 1981. Brown was also the host of the Country Music Greats Radio Show, a syndicated country music program from Nashville, Tennessee.

Jim Ed Brown - Old Lamplighter lyrics

 

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 loves someone who loves 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 at 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...
