"Blue Sky" is the eighth track by the Allman Brothers Band off the Eat a Peach album.

Dickey Betts wrote this about his Native American girlfriend, Sandy "Bluesky" Wabegijig. And for a while, Betts refused to perform this after their 1975 divorce.

Although Duane Allman was part of the recording of this song, he died before its release on Eat a Peach. Duane Allman and Dickey Betts played on the bridge solo - Duane going first followed by Dickey. They switch half way through - they can be heard synching up on a riff for two measures or so right around 2:30 into the track. There are only four known live recordings with Duane Allman, one of them being from their archival live album S.U.N.Y. at Stonybrook: Stonybrook, NY 9/19/71 in 2003, in which there is a blistering live performance of "Blue Sky."

This is the first time Dickey Betts sang lead vocals on an Allman Brothers song.
