Auerbach, Dan - Waiting On A Song Lyrics




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

    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

    My favorite album of the last couple years at least. Reppin NE Ohio!

    Easy Eye Sound

    Thanks, Robert!

    Robert Organ

    Funny story: I went to see the Black Keys in Detroit back in 2012(?) when leaving the show, I was bragging about how great Ohio is. Two people said they hated Ohians. I pointed out that they just paid close to $100 each to see two of them. Then I blasted "Ohio" on repeat while leaving Detroit.

    Thanks for being great.

    P.S. I proposed to my wife that night. I was rad af.

  9. Marshall Lancaster

    Paul Simon meets Dave Edmunds

  10. TimeThing1701

    Almost reminds me of Paul Simon's "Kodachrome".

  11. Bill Ries

    I dig what he does here.

  12. Harry Cole II

    If this song doesn't get your toe tapping you better check your pulse, you might be dead.

    Herbert Norkus

    Its funny, the music critics panned it....shows how out of touch with reality corporate america is...they can go F themselves, this song rules!

  13. Daniel Fontenot

    I had this song as soon as I found out about the new album. When my dad heard this in my car, he said it reminded him of his senior year of high school back in 1976. A time he thought he had long forgotten. So thanks for the song and the times they bring, Dan.

    Darien U

    Daniel Denton that’s the music video plot. 😂

    Herbert Norkus

    Show him the video! He'll love it even more!

  14. Katelyn Leach

    Simply amazing

  15. Rob Ewing

    This song

  16. Norm E

    I get this song in my head, and feel good all day

  17. Hugo Fergel

    Wow! This guy has it together.  Love his music.

  18. Wolfgang Steimer

    Like this song, but there is a strinking resemblence at the beginning between this song and Shaun Cassidy's "That's rock'n'roll", isnt
    there?

    Collin Wisniewski

    Wolfgang Steimer and it is very close to George Harrison's music in general

    Herbert Norkus

    Its because dan gives his music that 1970s vibe.

  19. Kevin Keegan

    Hey, hey hey!! this uhhh....this is a great album

  20. bobbynoe1

    Song-writing a la John Fogerty: three chords is all you need to get a good song.

  21. Fabio Giusto

    reminds me John Denver....

  22. michael dacosta

    Is there a backing track for this song??

  23. MegaZelenizub

    Go Dan, go!

  24. Carsten N Bertelsen

    Are you going to make a video for this song? I like it.....

  25. shielseh

    Awesome tune

  26. Andrew Politsky

    I think Dan writes better solo then with the keys. He opens up with more instruments. I love this album

    Malik A

    Andrew Politsky I knew that i've already enjoyed this voice already !!!
    I really like The Keys, and you came to confirm what I thought :D

    BOX MAN

    Andrew Politsky I wouldn't say Dans solo stuff is better than the keys... but it's close.

  27. Tom Berryhill

    Reminds me of Paul Simon a little

  28. Sue clyne

    Love it!

  29. Moments with Molly

    This started playing at Kohl's and I just HAD to look it up -- it's so amazing!

  30. Mariana Valarini

    Judith MacDonald

    Mason Reeves, In my opinion, the BEST album is All The Road Running by Mark Knopfler and Emmi Lou Harris, adore all the tracks, have worn out 2 cd's of this, did not think that this was ever possible !! Please look up and enjoy as I do, I am sure you will not be diapointed.....let me know !! xxxx
