They would walk down the street in the evening, And for years I would see them go by; And their love that was more than the clothes that they wore Could be seen in the gleam of their eyes; As a kid, they would take me for candy, And I loved to go tagging along; We'd hold hands while we walked to the corner, And the old man would sing her this song. Repeat Refrain: Now he walks down the street in the evening, And he stops by the old candy store, And I somehow believe he's believin' He's holding her hand like before; For he feels all her love walkin' with him, And he smiles at the things she might say; Then the old man walks up to the hilltop And gives her a daisy a day. Repeat Refrain: *Strunk, an occasional guest on the TV show "Laugh In," died in a plane crash in 1981.
