Song Lyric Sunday –“I’ll Never Find Another You” — The Seekers

For the Song Lyric Sunday theme this week, Jim Adams gives us “Lost/Found/Hide/Seek.” One of my favorite songs from the mid ’60s covers two of those themes: “I’ll Never Find Another You” by The Seekers.

Researching for SLS always reveals information I hadn’t known. For example, I never knew The Seekers were an Australian folk/pop group. I also learned this song was written by Tom Springfield, English pop star Dusty Springfield’s brother. Released in 1964, “I’ll Never Find Another You” reached number 4 on the 1965 Billboard Hot 100 chart. American country singer Sonny James covered it in 1967; his version peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country chart.

 

“I’ll Never Find Another You”

There’s a new world somewhere
They call the promised land
And I’ll be there someday
If you will hold my hand
I still need you there beside me
No matter what I do
For I know I’ll never find another you

There is always someone
For each of us, they say
And you’ll be my someone
Forever and a day
I could search the whole world over
Until my life is through
But I know I’ll never find another you

It’s a long, long journey
So stay by my side
When I walk through the storm
You’ll be my guide, be my guide
If they gave me a fortune
My pleasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow
And never mind at all
But if I should lose your love, dear
I don’t know what I’d do
For I know I’ll never find another you

But if I should lose your love, dear
I don’t know what I’d do
For I know I’ll never find another you
Another you
Another you
