Brenda Lee – Mood Indigo lyrics

(A. Bigard - D. Ellington - I. Mills)

Always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye
In evening 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

You ain't been blue, no, no, no
You ain't been blue
Till you've had that mood indigo
Like the feeling keeps stealing right down to my shoes
While I sit and sigh
Go long blue

I said you ain't been blue no, no, no
Lord you ain't really been blue,
Till you've had that mood indigo
That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes
While I, I sit and sigh
Go long blue
