I Could Write A Book About You Lyrics - Waylon Jennings

Review The Song (1)



Well, I know you like a brother.

And I know you as well.

There's some things we could talk about,

some things we'd never tell.

A few things in particular, an episode or two.

I could write a book about you.



(Now listen to this.)

Big Betty wore a lot of make-up. Didn't she sweat a lot?

The Maybelline ran like a river whenever she got hot.

Last time I saw Betty, as best as I can recall,

you were ridin' her piggyback down that motel hall.



(Hey, wait a minute! That ain't true.)

That's not the way I remember it.

You're lying like a rug on the floor.

The only Betty that I can remember,

I remember was yours.



(Sure!)

And since you brought up the subject,

let's talk about your taste in art.

The windows and walls and the ceilings and floors

you mighta got a little too dark.

And there's a motel out in Fresno

where neither one of us can go back.

You had a thing about yellow and green

so you painted the whole room black.



That ain't the way I remember it.

Seems like I had a little help.

You weren't along just for the ride.

You hit a few strokes yourself.


(Yeah!)

Well, I know you like a brother.

And I know you as well.

There's some things we could talk about,

some things we'd never tell.

A few things in particular, an episode or two.

I could write a book about you.

(But you don't have to worry. I ain't gonna do it, Waylon.)

(I hope not!)

I could write a book about you.

I Could Write A Book About You | Reviewer: Kelly Barton | 2/22/2007

"I Could Write A Book About You" is off the "Clean Shirt" albumn. This song is a duet with Willie Nelson. Very amusing stories of their younger, wilder days: A girl named Betty, not being about to go back to a certain motel because they didn't like yellow and green so they painted the room black. I loved the albumn but this song is a particular favorite.
