Lyrics
I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo
I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo
I'm blue, ooh, ooh, blue, blue be, doo, be, doo, be, doo

I throw'd a penny in the well
Hopin' you would come back soon
The fortune teller told me
My love with you, ooh, was through

I hope she was wrong
'Cause you been gone too long
Come home

(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
Yeah
(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, yeah
(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, blue, blue be, doo, be, doo, be, doo

I can't sleep at night for thinking of you
(Every night about two)
(My love for you comes tumblin' down)
I can't stand being here all alone

(I start to a-feelin' and a-fumblin')
(But you ain't nowhere around)
I hope her reading was wrong
(I hope she was wrong 'cause you been gone too long, come home)

Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, yeah

I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo
I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo
I'm blue, ooh, ooh, blue, blue be, doo, be, doo, be, doo

I wanna tell all you people
(I throw'd a penny in the well, hopin' you would come back soon)
I couldn't believe what I heard
(A fortune teller told me my love with you, ooh, was through)

I hope her reading was wrong
(I hope she was wrong 'cause you been gone too long, come home)

(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
Yeah
(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, yeah
(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, blue, blue be, doo, be, doo, be, doo

(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
Yeah
(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, doo, be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, yeah
(I'm blue, ooh, ooh, blue, blue be, doo, be, doo, be, doo)

Mmm, mmm, mmm, yeah
