Could I

Songfacts®:

  • James Griffin, who played lead guitar on this song, said: "Robb (Royer) came up with the musical idea for that one on piano. I wrote the second part, that George Harrison-ish middle-C section. We thought it had a real English flavor to it. Jim Gordon played drums on it - it was a real hard song for a drummer to pull off, because it had a 3/4 against a 4/4 rhythm. Jim was one of the few who could've done it." >>
