This song is in the key of C.
I'm so blue I don't know what to do, All day long I'm pining just for you,
I did wrong when I let you go away, For now I grieve about you night and day.
I'm unhappy and dissatisfied, But I'd be happy if I had you by my side.
If I could be with you I'd love you strong, If I could be with you I'd love you long,
I want you to know, I wouldn't go, Until I told you honey why I love you so.
If I could be with you one hour tonight, If I were free to do the things we might,
I'm telling you true, I'd be anything but blue if I could be with you.
