Four artists recorded this song before Elvis Presley. Doye O'Dell had the first in 1948, followed Ernest Tubb, Hugo Whiterhalter and Russ Morgan in 1950. Elvis recorded his version in 1957 and is the most played version during the holiday season. The single wasn't available until 1964, the same year The Beach Boys recorded their version.

Here are the chords you'll need for  Blue Christmas

  • B7 
  • Ab 
  • Gb 
  • Adim
  • E7  

This song has a rockabilly vibe to it with a pretty simple rhythm pattern using a root up down up root up down up strum. Leading into the B7 change from the E you have a quick G,A, A# run to the B note on the A string. You may have a tendency to want to play a bass note during the rhythm and if you do, the only place that would fit is while on the B7 chord.

What they did on the line "a-a-a bout you", they used a string bend from the Gb note up to the G, or you can use a quick slide up to that note. On an electric it's a bit easier to bend that note.

There is no need for a picking break here as the break is mainly hummed by backup, but I suppose you could if you wanted to.

Blue Christmas Lyrics

I'll have a blue Christmas ... without you
I'll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red ... on a green Christmas tree
Wont be the same dear if you’re not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes ... start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin all right ... with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue blue blue blue Christmas

You'll be doin all right ... with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue ... blue blue blue Christmas
But I'll have a blue ... blue blue blue Christmas
