“Am I blue?”


by Akst and Clark 1929

I’m just a woman, a lonely woman,
waiting on the weary shore.
I’m just a woman who’s only human,
one you should feel sorry for.

Well, I woke up this morning a long about dawn.
Without a warning I found that he was gone.
Why did he do it? How could he do it?
He’d never done it before.

Am I blue. Am I blue.
Ain’t these tears in these eyes tellin’ you?
Oh, am I blue? Well, I bet you would be, too,
if each plan with your man done fell through.

There was a time I was his only one.
but now I’m the sad and lonely one.

Was I gay ‘til today?
But now that man is gone,
he’s gone and we are through.
Am I blue.

There was a time I was his only one.
But now, a, now, now, now, I’m the sad and lonely one.
Oh god, I’m lonely.

But I remember, oh, I remember when I was gay.
That was up until today,
‘cause now that man is gone, he’s gone and we are through.
Am I, am I, well, would you believe it if I told you I’m blue?
