AM I BLUE?

A 1919 Torch Song

{9 measure introduction}

I'M JUST A WOMAN, A LONELY WOMAN,
WAITIN' ON THE WEARY SHORE.
I'M JUST A WOMAN, THAT'S ONLY HUMAN,
ONE YOU SHOULD BE SORRY FOR.













GOT UP THIS MORNIN ALONG ABOUT DAWN,
WITHOUT A WARNIN', I FOUND HE WAS GONE.
WHY SHOULD HE DO IT? HOW COULD HE DO IT?
HE'S 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.











WAS A TIME I WAS HIS ONLY ONE,
BUT NOW I'M THE SAD AND LONELY ONE.
WAS I GAY? 'TIL TODAY,
NOW HE'S GONE AND WE'RE THROUGH
AM I BLUE!












IT'S AGGRAVATIN', TO STAND HERE WAITIN'
WAITIN' FOR A TRIFFLIN' MAN.
IT SET ME HATIN' TO STAND HERE WAITIN',
SUICIDE'S MY ONLY PLAN.












I THINK IT'S AWFUL, HIS TREATMENT OF ME,
IT'S MOST UNLAWFUL HOW MEAN HE CAN BE.
I CAN'T FORGET HIM, I'M BOUND TO GET HIM,
I'LL RUN HIM DOWN IF I CAN!












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.












WAS A TIME I WAS HIS ONLY ONE,
BUT NOW I'M THE SAD AND LONELY ONE.
WAS I GAY? 'TIL TODAY,
NOW HE'S GONE AND WE'RE THROUGH
AM I BLUE!
