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 as blue as blue could be
Always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye

Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head, ooh
Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head, ooh, yeah
Woke up this morning but I'll be better off dead, uh-huh

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"

Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head, whoo
Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head
Woke up this morning but I'll be better off dead
