Then I
John Coltrane Lyrics


You look at me and wonder, you look at me and doubt,
Darling your eyes are asking, "Will the flame burn out?"
Well, no one is sure of sun shine, no one is sure of dawn,
But I am sure my love will live on and on.
I'll be tired of you when stars are tired of gleaming
When I am tired of dreaming, then I'll be tired of you.
This I know is true, when winds are tired of blowing,
When grass is tired of growing, then I'll be tired of you.

Beyond the years,
'Til day is night, 'til wrong is right,
'Til birds refuse to sing,
Beyond the years, the echo of my only love
Will still be whispering, whispering.
And if my throbbing heart should ever start repeating
That it is tired of beating, then I'll be tired of you.

Freddie Hubbard's solo is HEAVENLY!!!

Dan Jameson

Hubbard still doesn't get enough credit for his genius.

John Milliken

If there ever was a moment for a reprise of the feeling Mr. Coltrane gave us, now is the time.

Trane is so cool when he pays straight ahead Jazz! Red & Mr PC were part of Miles' sextet, too, that I saw so often down at Birdland! Miles, Cannonball & Philly Joe Jones would make it complete. Yeah! Freddie does a great job as does the drummer Art Taylor. Kudos to these Cats !
(When my aching heart keeps repeating, that it is tired of beating, then I'll be tired of you) or words to that effect. Dedicated to the Princess. She knows <3
