    You just don't know whenever 
            F# 
    You're done by the one you love 
 F#                    D  E 
    And the joke's on you

    Surrender do, to the sound so real and true

 F#                D E F#        D E 
    As the sun descends, rain begins 
 F#                D E      F# 
    Everything in view is a dull shade of blue 
 F#                  D  E F#              D  E 
    And the traffic sounds, the lights uptown 
 F#                 D    E      F# 
    Make a sad and uninviting scene to walk into 

E D7+                   A7+ 
    But the blue of the night 
 D7+               A7+ 
    Everything in daylight 
 D7+             A7+             G                  E 
    Don't even begin, to be as blue as the mood I'm in 
 D7+            A7+ D7+         A7+ 
    You go out alone, on their way home 
 D7+              A7+    G        C7+ 
    I'm wandering on, remembering only 
              Am7         Eb   F   G    Eb G 
    That I'm lonely and blues is king 

 F#           D E F#             D E 
    Blues is king, a beautiful thing 
 F#                  D      E 
    You just don't know whenever 
            F# 
    You're torn by the one you love 
 F#                     D E 
    And the joke's on you 
 F#                          D E 
    If you don't know it's true 
 F#                    D E 
    If you lose your dreams 
            F# 
    You'll know what I'm thinking of
