“Despite the waltz time signature, I feel it is more of a soul song,” Urban shared with Billboard in an interview. “We worked for a long time in the studio to get the feel and simplicity to where it is. Certainly when [parent album] Ripcord came out [in May], it was definitely one of the tracks that people responded to immediately. Even when we kicked off the tour [in June], it was getting the same reaction live. I loved it the first time I heard it [and] I love playing it live, so it’s really the best feeling when it connects the way that this one has.”

The song was written by Steven Lee OlsenHillary Lindsey, and Clint Lagerberg.

Blue Ain’t Your Color Lyrics

I can see you over there
Staring at your drink
Watchin’ that ice sink
All alone tonight

And chances are
You’re sittin’ here in this bar
‘Cause he ain’t gonna treat you right
Well, it’s probably not my place
But I’m gonna say it anyway
‘Cause you look like
You haven’t felt the fire
Had a little fun
Hadn’t had a smile in a little while
Baby

Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall
But, darling, it don’t match your eyes
I’m tellin’ you
You don’t need that guy
It’s so black and white
He’s stealin’ your thunder
Baby, blue ain’t your color

I’m not tryna
Be another just
Pick you up
Kinda guy
Tryna drink you up
Tryna take you home
But I just don’t understand
How another man
Can take your sun
And turn it ice cold

Well, I’ve had enough to drink
And it’s makin’
Me think that I just might
Tell you if I were a painter I wouldn’t change ya
I’d just paint you bright
Baby

‘Cause blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall
But, darling, it don’t match your eyes
I’m tellin’ you
You don’t need that guy
It’s so black and white
He’s stealin’ your thunder
Baby, blue ain’t your color, no,no no
Mmm. It ain’t your color, baby

Mmm, baby.

Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall
But, darling, it don’t match your eyes
I’m tellin’ you
You don’t need that guy
It’s so black and white
He’s stealin’ your thunder
Baby, blue ain’t your color
Blue ain’t your color

Mmm. No, no, baby
Come here, baby
Lemme light up your world
