George Strait – Am I Blue Lyrics

[Chorus]
Am I blue, yes I’m blue
It started the day I lost you
Nobody ever missed somebody like I do
Am I blue, am I blue

[Verse 1]
Just this morning over coffee
I set to crying ’cause you’re gone, long gone
I didn’t know just how much I was gonna miss you
Till I spent my first night alone
Am I blue, yes I’m blue
How could I have been such a fool?
Now look at all the misery I’m going through
Am I blue, am I blue

[Verse 2]
Tried to call and say I’m sorry
I couldn’t get you on the line
You’ll never know just how much I’m wishing
You would show up and say you’ve changed your mind

[Chorus]
