About this tab version
OK, the chorus might need some help, but I didn't see this song in here, so I thought I'd contribute a little. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Old 97s - Color of a Lonely Heart is Blue

(Standard tuning: Bb  F  Cm  Eb)
(To match recording: tune down a whole step:  C  G  Dm  F)

   Bb                         F
well the suns done gone don’t hand me no light
    Cm                        Eb
the moon and the man will be rollin’ all night
Bb             F                  Cm
scorpios up a-leading ol’ dan to pasture


         Bb               F
and the hours behind are all ways to few
    Cm                  Eb
the miles between can’t begin to undo
    Bb                F                Cm
the feeling you will never see another like her


Bb                F                       Cm           Eb
damn the lonesome ways and the young and foolish days
Bb              F                   Cm
and the kid who made the man who'd leave you
Bb                   F                  Cm            Eb
with the sink of the ship, I’m going to dip into that hue
Bb           F                 Cm
till I color me like i colored you
    Cm                        Eb  
the color of a lonely heart, and the color of a lonely heart is
Bb    F     Cm
 blue...

[CHORUS]
    Eb                         Bb    F    Cm
the color of a lonely heart is blue
    Eb                         Bb    F    Cm
the color of a lonely heart is blue
    Eb                         Bb    F    Cm
the color of a lonely heart is blue

Bb                F                   Cm                 Eb
Stars go off like flash pot dots that spark under candle power and stop.
Bb                             F                        Cm
lift up your light ‘cuz you'll never see a night that’s blacker
        Bb                    F
and the weight of it all gets heavier still
Cm                         Eb
time as it crawls a little slower until
Bb            F                   Cm
scorpios up a leading ol’ Dan to cancer


Bb                F              Cm                Eb
Damn the lonesome waaays and the young and foolish days
Bb              F                  Cm
and the kid who made the man who'd leave you
Bb                   F                  Cm            Eb
with the sink of the ship, I’m going to dip into that hue
Bb           F                 Cm
till I color me like I colored you
    Cm                        Eb  
the color of a lonely heart, and the color of a lonely heart is
Bb    F     Cm
 blue...

[CHORUS]
               Eb              Bb    F    Cm
the color of a lonely heart is blue
               Eb              Bb    F    Cm
the color of a lonely heart is blue
               Eb              Bb    F    Cm
the color of a lonely heart is blue
