am i blue lyrics – billie holiday

harry akst / grant clarke

it was a morning, long before dawn
without a warning i found he was gone
how could he do it
why should he do it
he never done it before

am i blue
am i blue
ain’t these tears, in these eyes telling you
how can you ask me “am i blue”
why, wouldn’t you be too
if each plan
with your man
done fell through

there was a time
when i was his only one
but now i’m
the sad and lonely one… lonely

was i gay
untill today
now he’s gone, and we’re through
am i blue
