Recorded by Paul Mauriat, 1968
Intro: ||: Em - A :|| Em A D G G/F# Blue, blue, my world is blue; Em C D G G/F# Blue is my world now I'm without you; Em A D G G/F# Gray, gray, my life is gray; Em C B7 Em Cold is my heart since you went away. Em A D G G/F# Red, red, my eyes are red Em C D G G/F# Crying for you alone in my bed Em A D G G/F# Green, green, my jealous heart Em C B7 Em I doubted you and now we're apart Bridge: E A E A E When we met how the bright sun shone C#m F#m B7 Em Then love died, now the rainbow is gone Repeat Intro: Em A D G G/F# Black, black, the nights I've known Em C D G G/F# Longing for you so lost and alone Em A D G G/F# Blue, blue, my world is blue; Em C B7 Em A Em A Em Blue is my world now I'm without you.
