I'm just a woman, a lonely woman,
Waiting on the weary shore.
I'm just a woman who's only human,
One you should feel sorry for.
Well, I woke up this morning a long about dawn.
Without a warning I found that he was gone.
How did he do it? Why could he do it?
He'd never done it before.
Am I blue. Am I blue.
Ain't these tears in my eyes tellin' you?
Am I blue? You'd be, too,
If each plan with your man done fell through.
There was a time I was his only one.
But now I'm the sad and lonely one.
Was I gay 'til today?
But now that man is gone,
He's gone and we are through.
Am I blue.
"When you hear music, after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again. "
