I Could Write A Book
John Coltrane Lyrics


If they ask me, I could write a book
About the way you walk and whisper and look
I could write a preface on how we met
So the world would never forget

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you, a lot
Then the world discovers as my book ends
How to make two lovers of friends
If they ask me, I could write a book
About the way you walk and whisper and look
I could write a preface on how we met
So the world would never forget, never, never forget

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you, allot
Then the world discovers as my book ends
How to make two lovers of friends

"I Could Write A Book"

A B C D E F G
I never learned to spell,
At least not well.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
I never learned to count,
A great amount.

But my busy mind is burning to use what learning I've got,
I won't waste any time,
I'll strike while the iron is hot.

If they asked me, I could write a book
About the way you walk, and whisper, and look.
I could write a preface
On how we met
So the world would never forget.

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.
And the world discovers
As my book ends,
How to make two lovers
Of friends.

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.
And the world discovers
As my book ends,
How to make two lovers
Of friends.

Thanks to your code I was able to understand the fact that the performance in October Coltrane's performance is growing significantly compared to that in May. Thank you very much.

Chambers so strong

Tom Towle

He is very melodic with his bass lines...you can bet Ron Carter listened to Paul Chambers a LOT
