"Keep Searchin'" as written by and D. Shannon....
No one will understand what I've gotta do,
I've gotta find a place to hide with my baby by my side,
She's been hurt so much, they treat her mean and cruel,
They try to keep us far apart, there's only one thing left we can do.

We gotta keep searchin', searchin', find a place to hide,
Searchin', searchin', she'll be by my side,
If we gotta keep on the run we'll follow the sun-ah, wee-ooh,
Follow the sun-ah, wee-ooh.

Doesn't matter, doesn't matter what people might say,
She's mine and I'm gonna take her anyway.

Gotta keep searchin', searchin', find a place to stay,
Searchin', searchin', every night and day,
If we gotta keep on the run, we'll follow the sun-ah, wee-ooh,
Follow the sun-ah, wee-ooh.

We gotta keep searchin', searchin', find a place to hide,
Searchin', searchin', she'll be by my side,
If we gotta keep on the run we'll follow the sun-ah, wee-ooh,
Follow the sun-ah, wee-ooh.

Follow the sun-ah, Follow the sun-ah, Follow the sun.

    General CommentThis is a weird song about what is a very unusual subject. The singer is a guy trying to rescue a girl from an abusive relationship, but "THEY treat her mean and cruel" is more like her parents are abusive rather than a husband or boyfriend. But the RESCUER is seen as the bad guy for running off with a teenage girl. This was followed up by a song called "Stranger in Town" appearing to be a PI chasing the couple down. Del Shannon was always ahead of his time.
