Color Of The Blues.
John Prine & Susan Tedeschi.
Album: For Better, Or Worse.

Intro: D A E A

Up above me are the skies,
         D               A
Like the twinkle in your eyes
D                    A     E           E7
These things are the color of the blues,
       A
In the mail your letter came, 
                  D6         A   A7
The ink and paper looked the same,
     D    Bm          A     E7     A
Yes, blue must be the color of the blues,

         D
Bluebird sitting in the tree,
         A
Seems to sympathize with me,
    D                A               E
For he's not singing like he used to do
           A
The pretty waters in the sea, 
        D                A
Feel as cold as you left me,
     D    Bm          A     E7     A
Yes, blue must be the color of the blues,

Solo: Bm A6 A D A E6 A

There's a rainbow overhead,
                    D        A
With more blue than gold and red,
D                A            E
Blue must be the color angels choose,
       A
A blue dress you proudly wore,
                 D         A
When you left to return no more,
     D    Bm          A     E7     A
Yes, blue must be the color of the blues,

          D
Blue days come and blue days go, 
      A
How I feel nobody knows,
D              A             E 
Life is mighty empty without you,
E         A
There's a blue note in each song,
A
That I sing since you are gone,
     D    Bm          A     E7     A
Yes, blue must be the color of the blues,
     D    Bm          A     E7 Amaj7 A   D A E7 A
Yes, blue must be the color of the   blues.
