Blue Skies

Scenes from a frequent drive along the river reminds me of one of my favorite songs. Blue Skies was written by Irving Berlin for the musical, Betsy, in 1926. It's been sung by many performers over the years, including Jim Reeves and Willie Nelson. It's crossed the lines of many genres with grace and ease. Evidently it has elements that appeal to many. May you have a "blue sky" day today!

Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see

Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on

Irving Berlin, 1926


  1. That's one of the good ones for sure!! Love that song...

  2. Thanks...I think. I'll be singing that one all day now. Boy, could we ever appreciate one of those beautiful blue skies about now...rainy and drear for the third day.

  3. I love that song! I'm a Willie fan and have that on one of his CD's. I'll have that in my head now all day:)

  4. Hi, my friend -
    We're enjoying blue skies with the most gorgeous, big, fluffy, white clouds this afternoon. It's been rainy long enough! You know I love that river and I always enjoy your photos. Thanks for the song - now it's 'playing' in my head!

  5. Hi Sweetie,
    Blue skies are all we have had, and as much as I love it, we desperately need rain!! I'm asking the Lord to keep us from burning up like in 1998!!

    Love this song!! Just one of those feel good, not a care in the world songs!!

    Have a great Friday, friend,
