Color of the Blues
by Loretta Lynn



Up above me are the skies like the twinkle in your eyes
These things are the colors 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 singing in the trees seems to sympathize with me
But he ain't singing like he used to do
The pearly waters in the sea are as cold as you left me
Blue must be the color of the blues

There's a rainbow overhead with more blue than gold and red
Blue must be the color angels choose
A blue suit you proudly 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 sang since you've been gone
Blue must be the color of the blues
