Verse:
You ain't been blue, No, No, No,
You ain't been blue, Till you've had that Mood In -di -go,
That feel -in' goes steal -in' down to my shoes,
While I sit and sigh: "Go 'long, blues."
 
Chorus:
Al -ways get that Mood In -di -go, Since my ba -by said good -bye,
In the eve -nin' when lights are low, I'm so lone -some I could cry,
'Cause there's no -bod -y who cares a -bout me, I'm just a soul who's blu -er than blue can be,
When I get that Mood In -di -go, I could lay me down and die.
