yes. leave the tail (by "tail", I assume you mean the fresh working yarn that's coming out of the skein). this is what I've done on striped stockinette pieces: when it comes time to use the grey again, make sure you bring it in FRONT of the blue before starting your first knit stitch with it. and don't tug the grey too hard, as this will make the edge of the blanket pucker. repeat this with the blue.

that's the simple way to do it. there are maaaaaany different ways to end (and start) a row. the more experienced people here can tell you about those... like one where you slip the stitch purlwise, or something.

Noro Striped Scarf
Lacy Ribbed Socks
