Leroy Van Dyke performs "Walk On By"

"Walk on By" is a song written by Kendall Hayes and performed by American country music artist Leroy Van Dyke. It was released in June 1961 as the first single and title track from the album Walk On By. The song was Van Dyke's most successful single, spending 37 weeks on the country chart and a record-breaking 19 at the number-one position. "Walk on By" crossed over to the pop chart peaking at number five, and was named by Billboard magazine as the biggest country music record in history.

 

The 19-week run of "Walk On By" is a record that stood for 51 years until "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line reached its 19th week at No. 1 on July 20, 2013; the following week, "Cruise" surpassed the standard when it recorded its 20th week at No. 1. Until Florida Georgia Line surpassed it in total weeks at No. 1, "Walk On By" held the record for most weeks at No. 1 since the introduction of the all-encompassing Hot Country Songs (then called Hot C&W Sides) chart in October 1958; the all-time record for most weeks at No. 1 (35 weeks) is held by Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's "Meant to Be."

Leroy Van Dyke - Walk On By lyrics

 

If I see you tomorrow on some street in town

Pardon me, if I don't say hello (hello)

I belong to another, it wouldn't look so good

To know someone I'm not supposed to know

Just walk on by, wait on the corner

I love you, but we're strangers when we meet

Just walk on by, wait on the corner

I love you, but we're strangers when we meet

In a dimly lit corner in a place outside of town

Tonight we'll try to say goodbye again (goodbye)

But I know it's not over, I'll call tomorrow night

I can't let you go, so why pretend?

Just walk on by, wait on the corner

I love you, but we're strangers when we meet

Just walk on by, wait on the corner

I love you, but we're strangers when we meet

I love you, but we're strangers when we meet
