  • 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
