Music Matchin’ with Mel

Mel has found some clever ways to match my Road Fever card with Walking to My Baby, go listen for some smooth harmonica and guitar. When I checked the lyrics there was a tickle in the back of my brain. I knew the perfect song to draw from the deck but I wasn’t one-hundred percent sure of the name. The great thing about the internet is that you can type in the most nonsensical search parameters than make sense to you and only you and you’ll find the right answer every time.

If you’re walking to your baby, you’ll be searching for her, too. From a life of summer road trips with my parents that helped to foster an eclectic library of musical generations in my head, here are The Coasters with “Searchin’ “!

(Gonna find her)
(Gonna find her)
(Gonna find her)
(Gonna find her) yeah
I’ve been searchin’ (gonna find her)
A-a searchin’ (gonna find her)
Oh, yeah, searchin’ every which a-way yeah, yeah (gonna find her)
Oh, yeah, searchin’ (gonna find her)
I’m searchin’ (gonna find her)
Searchin’ every which a-way yeah, yeah (gonna find her)
But I’m like that Northwest Mountie (gonna find her)
You know I’ll bring her in someday (gonna find her)
(Gonna find her)

Well, now, if I have to swim a river
You know I will
And a if I have to climb a mountain
You know I will
And-a if she’s a-hiding up on a-blueberry hill
Am I gonna find her, child, you know I will
‘Cause I’ve been searchin’ (gonna find her)
Oh, yeah, searchin’ (gonna find her)
My goodness, searchin’ every which a-way yeah, yeah (gonna find her)
But I’m like that Northwest Mountie
You know I’ll bring her in some day (gonna find her)
(Gonna find her)

Well, Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade got nothin’, child, on me
Sergeant Friday, Charlie Chan and Boston Blackie
A-no matter where she’s a-hiding, she’s gonna hear me a comin’
Gonna walk right down that street Like Bulldog Drummond
‘Cause I’ve been searchin’ (gonna find her)
Oooh, Lord, now, searchin’ (gonna find her)
Mm, child, searchin’ every which a-way yeah, yeah
But I’m like that Northwest Mountie
You know I’ll bring her in some day (gonna find her)
(Gonna find her…)
