The song was recorded in February 1976 in the Jungle Room of Presley’s Graceland home. The only time Elvis performed the song in its entirety was on February 21, 1977, at a concert in Charlotte, North Carolina. He had attempted to perform the song February 20 at the same venue but revealed to the crowd that he had completely forgotten the song; he returned on February 21, lead sheet in hand, and performed the song with his eyes glued to the lyrics. Both the February 20 false-start and the February 21 performance were recorded on soundboard in good sound quality and were released officially in 2007 by the Follow That Dream label; still photos of the February 21 performance also exist. The complete version was first released on bootleg by the Fort Baxter label in 1995.

Elvis Presley – Moody Blue Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well, it’s hard to be a gambler
Betting’ on the number
That changes every time
Well, you think you’re gonna win
Think she’s givin’ in
A stranger’s all you find
Yeah, it’s hard to figure out
What she’s all about
That she’s a woman through and through
She’s a complicated lady, so color my baby moody blue
[Chorus]
Oh, Moody blue
Tell me am I gettin’ through
I keep hanging’ on
Try to learn your song
But I never do
Oh, Moody blue
Tell me who I’m talking’ to
You’re like night and day
And it’s hard to say
Which one is you
[Verse 2]
Well, when Monday comes she’s Tuesday
When Tuesday comes she’s Wednesday
Into another day again
Her personality unwinds
Just like a ball of twine
On a spool that never ends
Just when I think I know her well
Her emotions reveal
She’s not the person that
I thought I knew
She’s a complicated lady, so color my baby moody blue
[Chorus]
