I Know That I'll Be Blue - Leroy Carr
Piano in G, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in D position, standard tuning, at G

I'll be so lonely baby, so lonely and so blue
I'll be so lonely baby, so lonely and so blue
'Cause all I have now baby is memories of you

You say you through baby, you want to say goodbye
You say you through baby, you want to say goodbye
All I can do baby is hang my head and cry

I can hear that train a-comin', I can hear that whistle blow (whistle)
I can hear that train a-comin', I can hear that whistle blow (whistle)
I can't bear to leave you baby, I can't bear to see you go

Before you leave me baby, before you go away
Before you leave me baby, before you go away
Just take a minute baby, and listen what I say

I know that I'll be lonely
I know that I'll be blue
I know that there will only
Be memories of you

Before you say goodbye dear
Before you say we're through,
Remember things as I do
Be sad and lonely too

Note: This is one of Leroy Carr's four "hybrid" blues songs. The first four verses are sung as a standard 12 bar blues. The final two verses are sung in the style of a pop ballad.
