Am I blue

Anyone know Billie Holiday’s rendition of Hoagy Carmichael’s song Am I Blue? Really great number. The words go like this:

 Am I blue
Am I blue
Ain’t these tears in my eyes tellin’ you
Am I blue
You would be too
If your plans with your man
Done fell through
There was a time
I was the only one
And now I’m the sad and lonely one, lonely, lonely
Was I gay, until today
Now he’s gone and we’re through
Am I blue

Oh, you know I’m blue
Oh, you make me, make me so blue
Ain’t these tears in my eyes tellin’ you
Oh, you makin’ me so blue
You know, you know, know you do
Now my plans with my man
They done fell through

There was a time
That I was his only one
And now I’m the sad and lonely one, lonely
Was I gay, until today
But now he’s gone and we’re through
Am I blue

  1. That is a beautiful picture, moof!!
    Did you paint blue over white paper and then add?
    Very inspiring ❤

  2. Dear Hazel,
    The painting looks very sad, distressed and overwhelmed. The feelings are depicted in the painting.
    Take care and in Christ,
    Aunt Martha

  3. You’ve captured the song just perfectly. A masterfully moving image.

    And on a lighter note, really digging the new (or not? Been a while since I’ve visited. Sorry bout that.) layout. Tis aces.
