"Soulful Shade Of Blue" as written by and Buffy Sainte Marie....
Dressmaker dressmaker
I'm singing at the hall
Next Saturday night and he'll be there
He's been gone
For so long
I want him back again
Make me the sweetest dress you can

Make it a soulful shade of blue
With a ribbon at the hem
A ribbon white for loyalty
To show that I remember
When a soulful shade of blue
Looked into my eyes
And tell him I want him back again

Dressmaker dressmaker
Don't make it loud or bright
Just make it a sweet and gentle style
Then maybe he'll remember me
It was not so long ago
I'll miss his sweet and gentle smile

Make it a soulful shade of blue
With a ribbon at the hem
A ribbon white for loyalty
To show that I remember
When a soulful shade of blue
Looked into my eyes
And tell him I want him back again

Make it a soulful shade of blue

    make it a soulful shade of blue
    with a ribbon at the hem
    a ribbon right below the teat
    to show that I remember when...

    General CommentI like to think of this as a song about the power of fashion as communication.
