"For My Lady" is a song by the English progressive rock band The Moody Blues. It was written by the band's flautist Ray Thomas, and was first released on the 1972 album Seventh Sojourn. It was later released on the B-side of the single "I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)" in 1973.

"For My Lady" is one of Ray Thomas's better known songs for the Moody Blues, along with "Legend of a Mind", and "Veteran Cosmic Rocker." It prominently features Ray Thomas on the flute and lead vocals.

Due to the complex nature of the song's recording, The Moody Blues can only perform the song live when they are backed by a live orchestra, since Ray Thomas cannot sing and play the flute at the same time.
