Standard by Duke Ellington, first recorded by the composer in 1930.

Recording sessions
1957: New York Beltone Studios
You ain't never been blue
No no no you ain't never been blue
Till you've had that mood indigo

That feeling goes stealing
Down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh
Go 'long blues

I always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye
And in the evening when the lights are low
I'm so lonely I could cry

For there's nobody who cares about me
I'm just a poor fool that's bluer than blue can be
When I get that mood indigo
I could lay me down and die

You ain't never been blue
No no no no you ain't never been blue
Till you've had that mood indigo

That feeling goes stealing
Down to my shoes
While I just sit here and sigh
Go 'long blues
