INTRO

Maybe it's true...I was just born to be blue

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
They say everybody's got someone
A sweet somebody to love
It might be faith or destiny
Baby written in the stars above

4 ladies chain that ring, you chain her right back
Keep that girl and promenade
Maybe my baby's nowhere to be found
And I was just born to be blue


FIGURE (1, 3)    Mainstream, corner progression

4 ladies chain 3/4
Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way
You lead to the right, dosado
Swing thru, boys run
Tag the line, face in
Square thru, go 3
Swing corner & promenade
Tell me I'm wrong...tell me I'm right...
But don't tell me I was born to be blue


FIGURE (2, 4)   

4 ladies chain 3/4
Heads (sides) go right & left thru
Sides (heads) lead right, do a dosado
Swing thru with the outside two
Single hinge, centers trade, recycle
Star thru and all promenade
Tell me I'm wrong...tell me I'm right...
But don't tell me I was born (to be blue)


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Was I born to be unhappy just to live on Heartache street
Was I born to go to bed each nite cryin' myself to

Allemande and weave
Can somebody out there help me, give me some kind of clue
Tell me I'm wrong...tell me I'm right...
But don't tell me I was born to be blue


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
They say nobody dies from a heartache
You can't drown in your own tears
But who wants to live in this world alone
When minutes turn into years

4 ladies chain that ring, you chain her right back
Keep that girl and promenade
Tell me I'm wrong...tell me I'm right...
But don't tell me I was born to be blue

Maybe my baby's nowhere to be found
And I was just born to be blue

Born To Be Blue
 
 

Maybe I'm wrong
Maybe I'm right
Maybe I just don't know
Will I ever fall in love
And never have to worry
That I'm fallin' all alone?
Maybe it's true
I was just born to be blue
Maybe it's true
I was just born to be blue

They say everybody's got a someone
A sweet somebody to love
It might be fate or destiny
May be written in the stars above
But I can't help but wonder
After all that I've been through
Maybe my baby's nowhere to be found
And I was just born to be blue

Was I born to be unhappy?
Just to live on heartache street
Was I born to go to bed each night
And cry myself to sleep?
Can somebody out there help me?
Give me some kind of clue
Tell me I'm wrong, tell me I'm right
But, don't tell me I was born to be blue

They say nobody dies from a heartache
You can't drown in your own tears
But who wants to live in this world alone
Where minutes turn into years?
So I'd rather go down believin'
Suffer a heartache or two
Tell me I'm wrong, tell me I'm right
But, don't tell me I was born to be blue

Was I born to be blue?
Born just to cry?
Born to be alone 'til the day I die?

Somebody tell me

Was I born to be loved?
Born to be kissed?
Born to find the one to show me what I missed?

Was I born to be blue?
Born just to cry?
Born to be alone 'til the day I die?

Tell me, mama

Was I born to be loved?
Born to be kissed?
Born to find the one to show me what I missed?

Lyrics by Mike Reid, Brent Maher and Mack David.
Recorded by The Judds.
