Waiting on a Song
Dan Auerbach Lyrics


I been thinking and been hummin'
I been pickin and I been strumming
Just waiting, waiting on a song
I been hitching and I been thumbin'
I can almost hear one coming
I'm just waiting, waiting on a song

I looked down in my pocket
Underneath the bed
Walked under the lamp post
And one hit me on the head

Am I blind or too dumb to see
All the sound surrounding me?
I'm just waiting, waiting on a song

You can look up at the stars
Bow your head and count the cars
You'll still be waiting, waiting on a song
Might be a blue bird or a crow
On a cord between two poles
They're just waiting, waiting on a song

Songs don't grow on trees
You gotta pick em' out the breeze
Fall down on your knees
And pray one comes along

When those railroad gates come down
You gotta stop and turn around
Or you'll be waiting, waiting on a song

"Waiting On A Song"

I've been thinking
I've been humming
I've been picking
And I've been strumming
Just waiting
Waiting on a song

I've been hitching
I've been thumbing
I can almost hear one coming
I'm just waiting
Waiting on a song

I look down in my pocket
Underneath the bed
I walked under a lamp post
And one hit me on the head

Am I blind or too dumb to see?
All the sounds surrounding me
I'm just waiting
Waiting on a song

You can look up at the stars
Bow your head and count the cars
You'll still be waiting
Waiting on a song

Might be a blue bird or a crow
On a cord between two posts
They're just waiting
Waiting on a song

Songs don't blow on trees
You gotta pick them out the breeze
You fall down on your knees
And pray one comes along

When those railroad gates come down
You gotta stop and turn around
Or you'll be waiting
Waiting on a song

You'll be waiting
Waiting on a song

Now this is a video with some personality. In 3 minutes you feel like you've been hanging out with these guys for years.

This reminds me so much of my life. I graduated in 1977. Had a Peter Frampton haircut and wore a powder blue tux to my prom. "Stairway to Heaven" theme. I got on a bus a few weeks later and spent the next 30 years in the military. There went the Peter Frampton hairdo. We have our forty year reunion in September and of all things ZZ Top will play on the 27th in my hometown. How weird. The stars must have aligned for that one. I did not think I would be alive this long.
