Blue Christmas

“Blue Christmas,” written by Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson, performed by Kitty Wells. The tune was originally recorded by Doye O’Dell in 1948, and Ernest Tubb had a hit with it the following year. That’s also when a shorter version was recorded by “Mr. B,” Billy Eckstine, and that’s what Elvis covered in 1957, the version you know.
