Duke Ellington / Irving Mills / Albany Bigard

You ain't been blue

No, no, no

You ain't been blue

Till you've had that mood indigo

That feelin goes stealin down to my shoes

While I sit and sigh "Go 'long, blues"

Always get that mood indigo

Since my baby said goodbye

In the evenin when lights are low

I'm so lonesome I could cry

'Cause there's nobody who cares about me

I'm just a soul who's bluer than blue can be

When I get that mood indigo

I could lay me down and die
