By eric clapton

As I am strolling down the garden path,
I saw a flower glowing in the dark.
It looked so pretty and it was unique;
I had to bend down just to have a peek.

Hello old friend,
Its really good to see you once again.
Hello old friend,
Its really good to see you once again.

I saw you walking underneath the stars;
I couldnt stop cause I was in a car.
Im sure the distance wouldn't be too far
If I got out and walked to where you are.

Chorus

An old man passed me on the street today;
I thought I knew him but I couldnt say.
I stopped to think if I could place his frame.
When he tipped his hat I knew his name.

Chorus
