Lyrics

Blue Christmas

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
Won’t 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

Songwriters: Johnson Jay W / Hayes Billy
