Blue Skies

  • Lyrics
  • I was blue, just as blue as I could be
    Every day was a cloudy day for me
    Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
    Skies were gray but they're not gray anymore

    Blue skies
    Smiling at me
    Nothing but blue skies
    Do I see

    Bluebirds
    Singing a song
    Nothing but bluebirds
    All day long

    Never saw the sun shining so bright
    Never saw things going so right
    Noticing the days hurrying by
    When you're in love, my how they fly

    Blue days
    All of them gone
    Nothing but blue skies
    From now on

    I should care if the wind blows east or west
    I should fret if the worst looks like the best
    I should mind if they say it can't be true
    I should smile, that's exactly what I do Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 6th 1927, 'The Jazz Singer', starring Al Jolson, had its world premiere at the Warners' Theater in New York City; it was the first feature-length motion picture with synchronized dialogue sequences, but it was not a complete 'talkie', there were just 291 spoken words in the film...
    "Blue Skies" was composed by Irving Berlin in 1926; Al Jolson performed the song in the 'Jazz Singer'...
    On August 27th, 1978 Willie Nelson's covered version of "Blues Skies" peaked at #1* {for 1 week} on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart; it also reached #1 on the Canadian RPM Country Singles chart...
    * Willie Nelson had two other #1 records on the Country Singles chart in 1978; "Georgia On My Mind" and "Mamas Don't Let Your Sons Grow Up to Be Cowboys" {a duet with Waylon Jennings}.
  • Tj from Chicago, IlGreat song. Really upbeat. Willy Nelson did a nice job of it.
