My Blue Tears

Lyrics: Dolly Parton
Music: Dolly Parton

Played by Bob Weir with Kingfish a few times in the 1970s, and a couple of times solo in the 1980s.

Fly away from my window little blue bird
Fly as far as you can away from here
And let not your song fall upon my ear
Go spread your blue wings and I'll shed my blue tears
For the only one that I have ever loved has gone away
And I'm in no mood for your sad song today

Bring not your light into my dark room, yellow sunshine
Waste not your warmth on the cold glisten here
Oh, trouble me not, go ye elsewhere
Go light your blue skies and I'll shed my blue tears
For the only one that I have ever loved has gone away
And I'm in no mood for your sunshine today

Go spread your blue wings
And light your blue skies
I'll shed my blue tears
