Am I blue?
Am I blue?

Ain't these tears
In my eyes
Tellin' you

Am I blue?
You'd be too

If each plan
With your man

Done fell through
Was a time
I was his only one

But now I'm
The sad and lonely one,
Lawdy
Was I gay
'Til today

Now he's gone
And we're through

Am I blue?

(bridge)

Was I gay
'Til today

Now he's gone
And we're trough

Am I blue?
Oh he's gone
He left me

Am I blue?
