Always get that Mood Indigo

Since my baby said "Good-Bye".

In the evening, when lights are low,

I'm so lonesome I could cry.

Ain't got nobody who cares about me.

I'm just as lonesome as a body can be.

When I get that Mood Indigo,

I just wanna lay down and die. 

You ain't been blue

No, No, No !

You ain't been blue

'Till  you've had that Mood Indigo.

That feelin' that goes reelin' down to your shoes,

While I sit & sigh "Go 'long Blues!"
