Mood Indigo

1930- Duke Ellington / Barney Bigard / Irving Mills

You ain’t never been blue, no, no, no
You ain’t never been blue
‘Til you’ve had that mood indigo
That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh
Go along blues

I always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye
And in the evening when lights are low
I’m so lonely I could cry
For there’s nobody who cares about me
I’m just a poor fool that’s bluer than blue can be
When I get that mood indigo
I could lay me down and die
