Blue Suede Shoes
Chords And Lyrics
Demo Tips & Pdf

Of course we all know that Carl Perkins wrote and recorded this song in early 1956 after Johnny Cash talked about airmans shoes in the military as blue suede shoes and suggested Perkins write a song about them. Perkins laughed at the idea until a few weeks later playing at a dance he heard a guy tell his date "un-hun don't you step on my suedes", and the guy was wearing blue suede shoes. with a scuff on one of them.

The Elvis version went to #1.

Blue Suede Shoes Lyrics

Well, it's one for the money two for the show
Three to get ready now go, cat, go
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, you can knock me down, step in my face
Slander my name all over the place
Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh honey, lay off of my shoes

Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

You can burn my house, steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit-jar
Do anything that you want to do - but uh-uh baby, lay off of my shoes
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, it's one for the money two for the show
Three to get ready now go, cat, go
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Blue, blue suede shoes oh baby
Blue, blue suede shoes uh ha
Blue, blue suede shoes oh baby
Blue, blue suede shoes
You do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
