Love Thy Neigbor
John Coltrane Lyrics

Love thy neighbor,
Walk up and say "How be ya
Gee! But I'm glad to see ya, pal,
How's tricks? What's new?"
Love thy neighbor,
Offer to share his burden,
Tell him to say the word "n"
You will see him through
Especially if there should be
a beautiful girl next door,
Say to that girl next door,
don't think I'm bold
But my mother told me to
Love thy neighbor
And you will find your labor,
A great deal easier,
Life'll be breezier
If you Love Thy Neighbor

Love this.  Another of Trane's great Prestige renditions of obscure standards, like "You Say You Care", "If There Is Someone Lovelier Than You", "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?", "Rise And Shine" and others.  I've never heard any other jazz artist do this tune.  It's really a sweet tune played slower w the lyrics and I like it that way also, but I like this up tempo version and the way Trane blazes his solo here.  Definitely an underrated tune.  Thanx for posting!

An incredibly underrated tune, it's impossible to have a bad day while this song is playing.

William Bingham

So profound I'm ashamed to say it out loud.
