Verse:
I wan - dered a - lone one night,
'Till I heard an or - ches - tra play.
I met you where lights were bright,
And peo - ple were care - free and gay.
You were the beau - ti - ful la - dy in blue,
I was in heav - en just waltz - ing with you,
You thrilled me with strange de - light,
Then soft - ly you stole a - way.
 
Chorus:
I dream of that night with you,
La - dy, when first we met,
We danced in a world of blue,
How can my heart for - get.
Blue were the skies and blue were your eyes,
Just like the blue skirt you wore.
Come back, blue la - dy, come back,
Don't be blue an - y more.
