Blue Prelude (1933)
(wm) Gordon Jenkins & Joe Bishop (I) Isham Jones Orchestra (P) Theme of Woody Herman Orchestra (CR) Doriss
Let me cry, let me sigh when I’m blue.
Let me go way from this lonely town.
Won’t be long ’fore my song will be through,
‘Cause I know I’m on my last go-round.
All the love I could steal beg or borrow
Wouldn’t heal all this pain in my soul.
What is love but a prelude to sorrow
With heartache ahead for your goal?
Here I go, now you know why I’m leaving:
Got the blues, What can I lose? Good-bye.
