About The Seeker

"The Seeker" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Dolly Parton, which served as one of the title songs to Parton's 1975 album Dolly: The Seeker/We Used To, and was also a top ten single on the U. S. country charts. A spiritual, which Parton described as her "talk with God", the song was released as a single in July 1975, just missing the top spot on the U. S. country singles chart; it peaked at #2. Two decades later, Parton rerecorded the song for her 1995 album Something Special. Nelly Furtado covered this song for the film The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom. Merle Haggard who, in his 1981 autobiography, "Sing Me Back Home", would confess his infatuation with Parton, also recorded the song.

I am a seeker
A poor sinful creature
There is no weaker than I am
I am a seeker
And you are a teacher
You are a reacher
So reach down

Reach out and lead me
Guide me and keep me
In the shelter of your care each day
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
You are the leader
Won't you show me the way

I am a vessel that's empty and useless
I am a bad seed that fell by the way
I am a loser that wants to be a winner
And you are my last hope
Don't turn me away

I am a seeker
A poor sinful creature
There is no weaker than I am
I am a seeker
And you are a teacher
You are a reacher
So reach down

Reach out and lead me
Guide me and keep me
In the shelter of your care each day
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
You are the leader
Won't you show me the way

Oh, you are a mountain
From which there flows a fountain
So let its water wash my sins away
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
And you are the theacher
Won't you teach me the way

Reach out and lead me
Guide me and keep me
In the shelter of your care each day
'Cause I am a seeker
And you are a keeper
You are a leader
Won't you show me the way
