"The Seeker" is a song by 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.[1]

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.[1]Merle Haggard, who had a crush on Dolly Parton, also recorded the song.
