Patty Loveless Color of the Blues Lyrics

sponsored links
Up above me are the skies
Like the twinkle in your eyes
These things are the color of the blues

In the mail your letter came
The ink and paper looked the same
Blue must be the color of the blues

Bluebird's sittin' in the tree
Seems to sympathize with me
For he's not singin' like he used to do

The pretty waters in the sea
Feel as cold as when you left me
Yes, blue must be the color of the blues

There's a rainbow overhead
With more blue than gold or red
Blue must be the color angels choose

And the blue look that you wore
When you left to return no more
Blue must be the color of the blues

Blue days come and blue days go
How I feel nobody knows
Life is mighty empty without you

There's a blue note in each song
That I sing since you've been gone
Blue must be the color of the blues
Yes, blue must be the color of the blues
