They Call Me “The Seeker”

My submission for Song Lyric Sunday August 18th – Song that References Another Group

The Who is one of my favorite bands of all time. I was only 3 when they rocked Woodstock in 1969. “The Seeker” wasn’t release until 1970 as a single, but certainly name dropped Bob Dylan, The Beatles & Timothy Leary (advocate of psychedelic drugs) which was so popular during that time.

The Who – One of the Greatest Rock Bands in History

I’ve never seen them in concert and am still hopeful that I can at some point. I think Roger Daltrey can still belt out a tune & (for me) sounds better today! Pete Townsend can still stir those strings! The 50th Anniversary 2015 Glastonbury concert lives on our DVR and gets cranked up on the surround sound whenever we are in the mood to listen (which is often). Absolutely Amazing!

“The Seeker”

I’ve looked under chairs
I’ve looked under tables
I’ve tried to find the key
To fifty million fables

They call me The Seeker
I’ve been searchin’ low and high
I won’t get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die

I asked Bobby Dylan
I asked the Beatles
I asked Timothy Leary
But he couldn’t help me either

They call me The Seeker
I’ve been searchin’ low and high
I won’t get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die

People tend to hate me
Coz I never smile
As I ransack their homes
They wanna’ shake my hand

Focusing on nowhere
Investigating miles
I’m a seeker
I’m a really desperate man

I wont get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die

I learned how to raise my voice in anger
Yeah but look at my face ain’t this a smile

I’m happy when life’s good and when its bad I cry
I got values but I don’t know how or why

I’m lookin’ for me
You’re lookin’ for you
Were lookin’ at each other and we don’t know what to do

They call me The Seeker
I been searchin’ low and high
I wont get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die

Songwriters: Peter Townshend
