Blue Melody

Tim Buckley

Well I was born a blue melody

A little song my mama sang to me

It was a blue melody

Such a blue

You've never seen

There ain't no wealth

That can buy my pride

There ain't no pain

That can cleanse my soul

No just a blue melody

Sailing far away from me

One summer mornin'

I was raised

But I don't know

One summer morning

I was left

But I don't know

One summer morning

So all alone

Late in ev'ning

I'll sing in your dreaming

Down from the mountain

Along with the breezes

So close inside

Love grew smiles

So if you hear that blue melody

Won't you please send it home to me

It's just my

Blue melody

Callin' far away to me
