Written by Nat Simon and Charles Tobias, "The Old Lamplighter" was first published in 1946. Though covered by many including Kay Kyser, Bing Crosby, Tex Beneke with The Glenn Miller Orchestra and even Slim Whitman in the early 60's, by far the most popular recording was that of Sammy Kaye & His Orchestra featuring Billy Williams on vocals.
It entered the the Billboard Best Seller Chart in November 1946 where it remained for a total of 14 weeks, peaking at No. 1
