Track Title: (I Was) Born To Be Blue Album Title: Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie! Prime Artist: Ella Fitzgerald Drums: Stan Levey Guitar: Herb Ellis Bass: Joe Mondragon Piano: Lou Levy Producer: Norman Granz Written by: Mel Torme Written by: Robert Wells Lyrics: Some folks were meant to live in clover, But they are such a chosen few. And clover being green is something I've never seen 'Cause I was born to be blue. When there's a yellow moon above me, They say there's moonbeams I should view But moonbeams being gold are something I can't behold 'Cause I was born to be blue. When I met you the world was bright and sunny When you left the curtain fell I'd like to laugh but nothing strikes me funny Now my world's a faded pastel Well, I guess I'm luckier than some folks, I've known the thrill of loving you. And that alone is more than I was created for 'Cause I was born to be blue. Transcribed by Linda S.
