Dan Auerbach – Waiting On A Song

The title song from his 2017 album. Dan Auerbach wrote this song with John Prine who is also in the music video. The song has a Grateful Dead feel to it. The music video is set in the ’70s and they really did a good job. The music video was shot in Nashville where the song was recorded at Dan’s Easy Eye Sound Studios. The girl in the video is played by Hayley Orrantia who plays the daughter in the TV show The Goldbergs.

RIP… John.

 

 

Waiting On A Song

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
