Blue Ain’t Your Color (Chords) | Keith Urban

Blue Ain’t Your Color is a song written by Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus about a man who has been cheated on by his significant other.

The song begins with him telling the woman that he knows what she's done and how much it hurts, but that he'll still love her anyway. He then goes on to say that blue isn't her color because it doesn't suit her well.

The first verse tells us how this man feels after finding out his significant other has cheated on him:

"My heart is heavy, my head is pounding

But I just can't get over you."
