ANNETTE HANSHAW lyrics - Am I Blue

ANNETTE HANSHAW
"Am I Blue"

I'm just a woman, a lonely woman
Waiting on a weary shore
I'm just a woman that's only human
One you should be sorry for

Got up this morning, along about dawn
Without a warning, I found he was gone
Why should he do it, how could he do it
He never done it before

Am I blue, am I blue
Aint these tears in these eyes telling 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...lordy
Was I gay, 'til today
Now he's gone, and we're through
Am I blue

He's in Chicago, he's in Chicago.
Now I'm down here in Birmingham.
Trying to get the money, to get to see my honey.
I am. Indeed, I am.

With the blues in my heart,
How my shoes want to start,
But I'm in a jam.

As blue as the sky blue.
All wondering why too, do these tears in these eyes telling you.

No one feels like I do.

Boo hoo, boo-hoo, boo-hoo

If each plan with your man
Done fell through

Was a time, I was his only, only, only one. But now I'm the sad and lonely one.
Lordy, was I gay. Oh Lord, was I gay-every day.

That man went away.
Now he's gone, and we're through. Am I blue.

That's all.
