Seekers, The - Don't Think Twice, It's All Right Lyrics

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter any how
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
Don't think twice, it's all right

There ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
There ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin' anyway
Don't think twice, it's all right

There ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
Like you never did before
There ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
I can't hear you any more
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
Gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's all right

I'm goin' down that long, lonesome road, girl
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, gal
So I'll just say fare thee well
Now I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
Don't think twice, it's all right

Don't think twice, it's all right
Don't think twice, it's all right

Seekers, The Don't Think Twice, It's All Right Comments
  1. emptyhand777

    Does anybody know who is singing which parts? Obviously we all know Judith's voice, but I can't place the boys. Thanks.

  2. Osvaldo Schilling

    Some indescribable linkage was established far above which has made the four youngsters in the black-white picture above spend most of their lives singing and traveling together. A brotherhood seldom seen within true families.

  3. Dale Hammond

    It's refreshing to actually hear "The Seekers" and not just Judith. But it's obvious she made the song work.

  4. Ruben James

    This is one of the few songs that I didn't think they did a very good job with.

  5. Tumbleweed


  6. William Murray

    simply the BEST !

  7. Daniel. Ostridge Ostridge

    Brilliant song the words to it that make it a smash it .grate song .good sounds coming from the guitars fantastic sounds very catchy music brilliant dont think twice it's all right. Brilliant

  8. Stephanie Barr

    The Weavers were good, but The Seekers, well they are in a different constellation altogether.

    Linda Petrides

    Judiths voice is a blessing to us all

  9. nudnikjeff

    What is harmony? This version is pure delightful harmony!

  10. emptyhand777

    This is a wonderful interpretation!

  11. Kevin Garris

    There ain't no way that there will ever be another band like this.

  12. Barclay

    No auto tune here!

  13. Meechang Tuie

    When is the next reunion?

  14. john king

    This arrangement is masterful and the harmonies are inspired. Would love to have been there when they were deciding how to put this beauty together.

    John Salvage

    Great sentiments. Agreed.

  15. Danny Newman

    By far a better version than the original

  16. World Lee

    Bruce Woodley is an under rated singer and musician .All of the guys in the seekers are under rated. Probably because Judith was the best singer in the world at the time.

  17. World Lee

    Having Judith in harmony is unbelievable. You just can't do better then that!

  18. World Lee

    Best version of this song by far. Harmonies are hard to beat

  19. marco brenni

    Great ! However listen also at P.P&Mary's version !

  20. Marijke Vandermeersch

    I was 16 in 1968 and just loved thé romantic songs performed by The Seekers. Now, I'm 65 and I still llike them ! They remind me of thé wonderful time I had with my English penpal in London at that time. Marijke Vandermeersch _ Ghent/Belgium

  21. Richard Moon

    Thanks again for this treat.

  22. sonyahannah

    Ah -- glorious memories of singing 3- or 4-part harmony with our guitars back in dormitory days. . . most of our "repertoire" was Seekers; Peter, Paul and Mary; Kingston Trio; early Dylan, and lots of country & western

    John Jarou

    nice version. never heard it before now. i was familiar with the peter paul and mary and bob dylan versions.

  23. cumomsandcureloms

    This must have been very soon after Judithe joined the band, since she doesn't have a solo


    She didn't always have solos she had none in Red Rubber Ball either. She doesn't need one anyway, her voice is loud and distinct enough to be heard :)

  24. Larry Hedge

    So soothing they are.

  25. Ana J.

    Love the lyrics (and surely who's playing!)... But is Athol who's singing it?


    Athol has a much deeper voice sounds like Bruce Woodley

    Ana J.

    Hmmm, yes sounds like, he's a great singer too in my opinion. :)

  26. Eamon Bloomfield

    When I was 18, in 1970, I was on holiday in Sardinia. One night we met a beach-bum who played his guitar and sang this song. Loved the song ever since. My favourite Dylan song by miles and miles .....

    Mister March

    Eamon Bloomfield thats cool as fuck.

    John Salvage

    I wonder what happened to that beach bum?

  27. Idan K

    this cover is better then Bob Dylan's original one

    Raymond Bullock

    cough cough , pass that by me again

    dehoe disc

    There was a very strong comment made in the old days about Bob Zimmerman's voice sounding like a dog with it's leg caught in barbed wire.





  29. kevin heming

    What harmonies!

  30. imusfan48

    I be loving me some 'Judith Durham'!

  31. Texaschainsaw

    Along with The Weavers the greatest folk group of all time!

    William Murray

    ---- and they weren't Commies ! read the Weaver's history , real subversives !

  32. stanley robinson

    great  music

  33. Tor Ole Rønning

    The Seekers is a fantastic Group!

    Jeffrey Kaufmann

    Tor Ole Rønning I think they are better than Peter Paul and Mary .Judith's voice is better than Mary's.

  34. John Prewett

    mighty fine .....

  35. Frederick Combs

    It is nice to hear the boys get to solo in the group... Judith of course is always great. This is a real crowd pleaser. At the start of the song, they sound very much like the Beatles. Another great one, even despite the mono recording.

    John Peel

    +Jim Britt They appeared on the same stage as The Beatles in the heady days of 1965.

    john king

    New Musical Express 1965....entire concert (presently) on YT and the Seekers conquered all!

  36. Jie Song

    One of the best music from the Seekers.

  37. mark ochs

    Once again, great harmony. Good easy listening song sung by the Seekers.

  38. Joseph DeLorenzis

    This sounds like an early Beatles song. I can imagine them performing this song.

  39. Joseph DeLorenzis

    I love those little head shakes she does when she's onstage.

  40. dick12235

    Back for more Judith.

    Thanks for posting .

  41. Jie Song

    The melody is smooth and easy, even slightly delightful when The Seekers were singing it. The lyrics, I just found out, is fairly sadly sentimental. --- Jie Song also Jerry Song, a free commentator and a writer

    Butter Balls

    Would you call them sentimental? I would say the opposite.

  42. dick12235

    Judith. Voice of an Angel.


  43. Charles Moore

    Great old song! I like all the versions: Dylan (the writer), Peter, Paul & Mary, The Seekers, just a great song for harmonies! Thanks for sharing!

  44. Jim Nesta

    It's great hearing Judith doing vocal harmony, rather than the lead vocal I'm used to hearing her do. She does a great job on this song.

  45. sirocco98

    Bob Dylan wrote this song in 1962.


    Thank you Captain Obvious.

  46. Steve Wiseman

    Another Dylan composition. So many greats. Just a shame his singing can't match his composing.

    Raymond Bullock

    stick to the seekers mate

  47. chris daigle

    You're right on that, thanks for YouTube! The work of the Seekers should be required material for any music and singing class.

  48. MrTrashcan1

    With Judith supplying harmony rather than a lead vocal, it sounds more like the Weavers. And I love that, too! Makes sense, since Pete Seeger, who wrote this song, was a member of the Weavers.


    You're on acid, right? Bob Dylan wrote this. Hope you spent the last 6 years getting an education.


    @WallyVanRiper1 - frickin' hilarious!

  49. StevieB1362

    Wow. Never knew they made this too. Different, but just as nice as P, P & M's version. Miss Judith's voice is icing on the cake. Long live the Seekers.

  50. MsPony65

    @ianjcameron What a wonderful memory! Thanks for sharing. :)

  51. Peter Jones

    well said gdh989

  52. SK Shum

    Good for listening!

  53. Worldview66

    If The Seekers had toured North America in the sixties, people here would have learned what the rest of the world already knew: they were the best folk group going. Their voices, harmony, instrumentation, and arrangements were superior to everyone else.

    Arlys Veen

    Worldview66 and their one chance to sing "George Girl" at the Acadamy Awards, they were tied up in England! Sorry, didn't realize it was 5 years that you wrote this😉

  54. isukaman

    @janbohme It's all a matter of opinion.

  55. janbohme

    @isuckaman Well, for a solo version, Johnny Cash tops Dylan quite handily, IMO. And the best group version has to be Peter, Paul and Mary's. This version is decent, but a bit too much of an ordinary sixties pop song to compete with PP&M, Cash or Dylan himself.

  56. grimTales1

    Good song - I didnt know it was a Dylan cover :D

  57. DV DODDS

    Bob Dylan cover.

  58. johnfsut

    @1canyonguy Completely agree, Judith's harmony is really a joy

  59. 1canyonguy

    Oh behave! why compare/argue? lets enjoy what is to enjoy

  60. 1canyonguy

    @Pilot200 Try listening to Rambling Jack Elliotts version

  61. RM1SS

    @Sumo0pa Ja, doch! Aber "wundervoll" genuegt nicht - gibts ein besseres Wort? Etwas staerker....

  62. Pilot200

    Obviously this is the best version of this song, even better than Dylan's.

    Raymond Bullock

    your a worry !

  63. johnfsut

    elmerhdga, Please excuse my opinion if it offended you. I did not intend to offend. I very much enjoy Peter Paul and Mary's music as well. However, with that said, your remarks at the end of your email are offensive and clearly out of line.

  64. johnfsut

    This version is clearly better than the Peter Paul and Mary version. The harmonies are perfect and the tempo is superior. Amazing Group.

  65. rdvqc

    Grand old Dylan song. This was from one of the first Seekers albums I bought. Still have the old worn vinyl version.

  66. rwb010109

    Forever hooked on the Seekers,,RWB

  67. misterdakman

    very impressive!

  68. 100lemon

    thanks so much

  69. Brian54M

    Thanks Darren

    Keep finding them!
