The blues blew in today
A little talkin’ blues

 

A sky that cried, a dark moonrise,

A storm that lost its way,

The air is still, a sudden chill,

The blues blew in today.

 

It took my heart quite by surprise,

I shed a tear in vain,

I caught my breath, I guess you’ve guessed,

The blues blew in today.

 

No warning sign, no preface,

No messenger to say,

A breeze aloft and there it was,

The blues blew in today.

 

A fateful salutation,

On a melancholy date,

A haunting draught, Miss Fortune laught,

The blues blew in today.

 

It may not last forever,

I seek a quick escape,

But in between, I take my leave,

The blues blew in today.

 

A chord struck on a keyboard,

The pianist needs a shave,

No point tonight, the bar is quiet

The blues blew in today.
