Subject: Walk On Little Boy
From: Barry T

I'm seeking the lyrics to a wonderfully sentimental song performed by Glenn Yarbrough on his album Baby The Rain Must Fall. From what I remember, a couple of lines are as follows:

Walk on little boy
Your life has only started
A world full of joy
Is there for you to see
Walk on little boy
Our paths today have parted
So walk along, run along
But don't you wait for me.

I'm after this for a lonesome Dad whose son left home this past weekend... me!

No luck with Google, altho copies of the CD are available everywhere. And nothing here at Mudcat.

Sorry!

Thanks for trying, WYSIWYG! I scoured the web, too, before resorting to registering a plea here at Mudcat.

I guess I'll just have to dust off the old credit card! 8-0

Okay, so it's been four and a half years......

If you're still looking for the lyrics, I'd be happy to send them.

Better to email me directly as I'm not a regular visitor. I found this thread through Google, as I, too, am looking for background info on this song.

Here are a couple of verses that I transcribed from two different sound samples; therefore I don't know whether there's more, or whether I have them in the right order.

Walk on, little boy. Your life has only started.
A world full of joy is there for you to see.
Walk on, little boy. Our paths today have parted,
So walk along, run along, but don't you wait for me.

Walk on, little boy. We've been too long together.
Don't cry, little boy. It's time I set you free.
Walk on, little boy. You've seen the change of weather,
So walk along, run along, but don't you wait for me.

allmusic says it was written by "Gilkyson"—that's probably Terry Gilkyson.

MusicStack says it was also recorded by Arthur Godfrey!

Walk on, little boy. Your life has only started.
A world full of joy is there for you to see.
Walk on, little boy. Our paths today have parted,
So walk along, run along, but don't you wait for me.

Walk on, little boy. We've been too long together.
Don't cry, little boy. It's time I set you free.
Walk on, little boy. You've seen the change of weather,
So walk along, run along, but don't you wait for me

The road of life has stretched out far behind me,
With all the friends I've known from day to day,
And still I bless the night you came to find me,
To hold my hand until you learned the way.

Walk on little boy and keep the brave world spinning.
A life full of joy is there for you to see.
Walk on little boy, your life is just beginning.
So walk along, run along, move along,
But don't you wait. Don't stop to wait.
No don't you wait for me.

WALK ON, LITTLE BOY
(Terry Gilkyson)

Walk on Little Boy, We've been too long together,
Don't cry Little Boy, It's time I set you free.
Walk on Little Boy, You've seen the Change of Weather,
So walk along, run along, but don't you wait for me.

Walk on Little Boy, Your life has only started,
A world full of Joy is there for you to see.
Walk on Little Boy, Our paths today have parted,
So walk along, run along, but don't you wait for me.

The road of life has stretched out far behind me
With all the friends I've known from day to day.
But still I bless the night you came to find me,
To hold my hand until you learned the way.

Walk on Little Boy, and keep the brave world spinning.
For life is no toy that spins the dreamer free.
Walk on Little Boy, your road is just beginning,
So walk along, run along, move along,
But don't you wait. Don't stop to wait,
But don't you wait for me.


Songfile.com says the songwriter was Terry Gilkyson. -Joe Offer, Mudcat Music Editor-
