12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
I wandered alone one night,
'Till I heard an orchestra play.
I met you where lights were bright,
And people were carefree and gay.
You were the beautiful lady in blue,
I was in heaven just waltzing with you,
You thrilled me with strange delight,
Then softly you stole away.
I dream of that night with you,
Lady, when first we met,
We danced in a world of blue,
How can my heart forget.
Blue were the skies and blue were your eyes,
Just like the blue skirt you wore.
Come back, blue lady, come back,
Don't be blue any more.
