Intro: / G - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / - - - - / x2

 

G             Em                 C (2)

   Go find a jukebox and see what a quarter will do 

G                     Em                  C (2)

   I don't wanna talk I just wanna go back to blue  

G                           Em              C (2)

   Feed's me when I'm hungry and quenches my thirst 

G                         Em               C (2)

   Loves me when I'm lonely and thinks of me first  

 

Chorus:

G (2)                     Bm (2)

Blue is the color of night when the red

 Am (2)                                  G   D

sun disappears from the sky

  G (2)                               Bm (2)

Raven feathers shiny and black

Am (2)                                                           G   D

A touch of blue glistening down her back

 

G (2)

 

G                         Em                          C (2)

We don't talk about heaven and we don't talk about hell

G             Em                          C (2)

We come to depend on one another so damn well

G              Em      C (2)

So go to confession whatever gets you through

G                        Em          C (2)

You can count your blessings I'll just count on blue
