Am I Blue

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?
