Blue River

I set to thinking
     What it was
That made me do
     The things I do

I lit a candle
     Just for you
It burned real bright
    Then it burnt quite low
But though hard I tried
    It would not die

So I'll go sit by the Blue River
    Where lonely lovers go.

Elvis' "Blue River"

I couldn't honestly say that I am an Elvis Presley fan, but I found the lyrics of his "Blue River" on the Web
and it sort of captured what I am feeling at the moment - with a little alteration, it could be my story :-(
(found the lyrics on d 13th and wrote the piece above on the 14th)

Blue river, it can't be found on any map that I know
But it's the place where lonely lovers all go
To cry their tears, blue river
It winds along a path of heartache and pain
Of broken dreams from lovin' someone in vain
Like I loved you, and baby I still do
I held you so tight
You were out of my sight
I'm feelin' so low
But I gotta go
Blue river because you never really cared about me
From now on baby that's where I'm gonna be
Cryin' over you, by the river of blue

 

Since its "Feeling Blue" season, here is another song that makes me wanna ... ("Blue Moon")
The first time I heard it must have been in the early 80s - in the film "An American Werewolf in London"

Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold
Blue Moon
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold
Blue moon
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue moon
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
