A Little Street Where Old Friends Meet

Words and Music by Gus Kahn and Harry Woods (1932)

It’s just a little street
Where old friends meet,
I’d love to wander back
Someday.

To you, it may be old,
And sort of tumbled down,
But it means a lot to folks
In my hometown.

Although I’m rich or poor,
I still feel sure
I’m welcome as the flowers in May.

It’s just a little street
Where old friends meet,
And treat you in the same old way.

Although I’m rich or poor,
I still feel sure
I’m welcome as the flowers in May.

It’s just a little street
Where old friends meet,
And treat you in the same old way.

    RUTH ETTING AND I BOTH GREW UP IN A SMALL NEBRASKA TOWN, DAVID CITY. NOW ALMOST 80 YEARS AFTER RUTH RECORDED THIS SONG, I HAVE THE HONOR OF SINGING A BARBERSHOP QUARTET ARRANGEMENT IN A SHOW IN ROGERS, AR.
