Song Description

Someone you love very much now refuses to see you.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written many years ago and forgotten. Dave Jenneson, the lyricist, and I decided to rewrite it. We had forgotten the verse and lyrics - only the chorus and title remained. It turned out to be the last song I wrote with Dave as he died soon after. Eerily he predicts his own funeral in the last verse.

Lyrics

BLUE TELEGRAM

Last night I gave you a letter
Today the letter's burned
I swear I've never tried so hard
For so little in return
I don't want our love to end
But all you ever send
Is a blue blue telegram
I thought you were my friend

Blue telegram
I thought you were
I thought you were my friend
Blue telegram
I thought you were
I thought you were my friend

No answer when I call you
So I took walk downtown
If I can't see you one more time
I'll jump in the river and drown
So I'm callling you again
Why does it always end
In a blue blue telegram
I thought you were my friend

Blue telegram
I thought you were
I thought you were my friend
You're always sending my these blue telegrams
I thought you were
I thought you were my friend

They dressed me up in a brand new suit
And they laid my body down
I looked so fine on my funeral day
And still you won't come around
Now it's too late to pretend
Here it comes again
It's your blue blue telegram
I thought you were my friend

You're always sending me these blue telegrams
I thought you were my friend
You're always sending me these blue telegrams
I thought you were my friend
