Buddy Holly - 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.
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.
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 fruitjar.

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.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Buddy Holly Blue Suede Shoes Comments
  1. Justin Ratliff

    Ok, in what effed up universe does it make sense to put a picture of the airplane that Buddy, Richie, and the Bopper died in this "tribute" video? Why not put a picture of the terrorists that crashed the planes on 9/11? Awkward, distasteful, and distant. Only a person who treated these people as NOT people would be so clueless. I appreciate the effort, but be more mindful of what your including. These were real people with real families, lives, and loved ones. They died a horrific way, and we should all hope that our last moments are more private and protected.

    the CRICKETS [ including Buddy ] recorded any song they liked just for fun and thankfully they taped them but at the time they were never meant to be released they were for fun. but his death brought out every song he recorded and some he just sang as parts but they were put together as songs.

  3. Linda Dimira

    Buddy admired everyones songs.He played them well.He was sitting around jamming to songs he loved.

  4. Joseph Nania

    GOD BLESS BUDDY HOLLY - WONDERFUL TO HEAR HIM EVEN 60 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH, JOE NANIA A.K.A. HOLLYWOOD JOE

  5. Tommo Burden

    Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and him sang the song but Carl Perkins made the song and also Eddie Cochran sang it as well

  6. Rob Jontay

    Great cover of Perkins song. JI Jerry Alluson and Joe B dont get enough credit. They were the first group, power trio and 4 man band in RockNRoll. (Niki youre here too) Bass, Drums, Lead Guitar, Rhytym guitar. FAB if you catch my drift Buddy...

  7. kevin casson

    Listen this man is the king!! Fucking brilliant!! Elvis move over, sorry but this man is king!!

  8. Macie Colasanto

    What asshats gave this a thumbs down? Morons

  9. the king

    Buddy holly Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins all of there versions of blue suede shoes are great. Rock n Roll Rules 🎸🎸🎸

  10. Norman Grimm

    Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley would be proud

    Joseph Nania

    they are

  11. joe gongora

    This song was recorded in his family's garage in Lubbock, Texas. Probably in 1956 when he'd get together with the guys. At the time Buddy & guys were still doing Country & Western gigs. Some of those songs that were recorded in the garage. Later were worked on in Petty's studio. With The Fireballs providing back up music. These tape & The apartment tapes were the ones that Norman Petty provided the additional backup music. He did a great rendition of Blue Suede Shoes. Definitely he was a great rocker.

  12. Jordi Raül Vives Vicente

    Elvis had better voice,but the better performance is from Holly.

  13. phil zwo

    I prefer Karl

  14. Naomi Wood

    Love this version of one of my favourite Buddy songs. Wghat s legend he is.

  15. sergei paranichev

    What a wonderful glasses face!

  16. PJ Riverdale

    Movies and other visual media stay away from paying the higher fees to license Pelvis
    tracks.
    Not that most of the rest of all those BOPPIN,POODLE SKIRTIN', two and a half minute epics by others need to be heard,either.
    Like every decade afterward, assloads of product to the tune of 5000 singles a year were released up into at least the Seventies.
    Everything Smelvis did after 1958 has to be VERY CAREFULLY weeded out to find any listenable songs at all,much less all the "Bobby,Frankie,Philadelphia" crap from back then.
    And that's just a small sample covering only two years at the end of the so called "FABBO FITTIES"
    So called Oldies Radio has done a tremendous disservice to any decade it programs because it only focuses on "TOP 10" stuff which is NOT NECESSARILY NOR REPRESENTATIVE of the best records made during the respective time as programmed.

  17. Sacco Archimedo

    RIEN A DIRE CE SONT LES GUITARISTES QUI LA CHANTENT LE MIEUX CE FAMEUX BLUE SUEDE SHOES....COCHRAN..PERKINS...

  18. Johannes Butz

    In my opinion that is the best version of the song on #2 is the original by Carl Perkins and #3 Elvis' version

  19. Alex P

    Elvis sang it better.

    Juan Carlos Cabrera Menendez

    Yeah¡¡¡¡ much better .

    Albert Clark

    Roy hall did it better than Elvis

    kevin casson

    Elvis not in the same class, as Holly, he really ain't mate😊!!

  20. Axel Bodin

    Maybe his first recording in 1956.

  21. Slipknotking133

    I hope people who watch this know that Carl Perkins was the Original writer of this song

    Slipknotking133

    Kenny Dobbins good to hear

    Kenny Dobbins

    To me Elvis's music doesn't give me that 50's feel! But Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cohcran, Roy Orbison, Richie Valens, The Big Bopoer, Bill Haley an his Comets, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Little Richard, The Platters, The Del Vikings, The Skyliners, The Chordettes, Johnny Burnette, Dion and the Belmonts, The Diamonds, Danny and the Juniors, etc. Now that's 50's! Notice how no movies about the 50's play Elvis songs! like for example American Graffiti!

    M Angel

    WHOA! I never noticed no one played Elvis' tunes in the movies. Must have been because of the royalties. You think?

    Alfred Neuman

    Legend has it George Lucas didn't bother to have any Elvis songs in American Graffiti simply due to the licensing fees. The 40+ songs that ARE in the movie cost less than the licensing of ONE Elvis song. Keep in mind that was when Elvis was still alive too! Rumour has it today, 1 second of ANY Elvis recording costs you $10,000. And Priscilla wonders why Elvis has been reduced to nothing more than a caricature? He's priced himself out of the public eye - just like the Colonel did. The exploitation of Elvis will never cease.

    Master Kota

    ffdztdr American Graffiti takes place in the 60’s bro... The Beatles are mentioned near the beginning.

    Dashing Gaspar

    Ricky Nelson too.

  25. ffdztdr

    Love Buddy Holly's version it's better than Elvis! Carl Perkins has the best version, then comes Buddy Holly's version, then Elvis.

    Sanity Ensues

    Absolutely.

    Albert Tatlock

    ffdztdr I'm sure many with disagree with you, Elvis made popular after Perkins had rockabilly number 1 with it

    Hugofor

    Albert Tatlock But with Buddy, all have Magic.
    Elvis never makes one music, never put soul in this

    Hugofor

    Albert Tatlock Elvis was just one actor

    kevin casson

    Buddy Holly, wow!! He is scarring!! God if only he had lived!! Crickets ,especially ji, brilliant!!!!

  26. Doobeez

    Listen, I was raised on Elvis. The man could sing any song how HE wanted too. Buddy Holly fills the same billing. God rest them both.

    Carl Smith

    Godfathers of Rock

  27. jon cotner

    yehhhhhhhhh good ole buddy rock on

  28. Iden M

    you missed out burger king!! lol!

  29. john burke

    Back in the day whenever you bought a record by Buddy Holly,just like Elvis you got a two sided hit.

  30. john burke

    I'm glad to be old enough to have been around in the days of Buddy Holly.

  31. moz215

    Buddy the true king

  32. eugene kornacki

    another good song by buddy he never made a bad cut he sure was amazing

  33. El Duderino

    Me too! But not as a black dude, would hate to get lynched.

  34. chelseaemma444

    "Go get 'em boy" ???

  35. RickGibbonsOfficial

    Buddy was inspired to play rock n roll because of Elvis, he was a more of a Country & Western performer before he heard Elvis.

    Super.Chuck

    Your thinking of Texas Swing aka Western Swing, not Country ...... it gave us the moniker of Country AND WESTERN .... 2 distinct styles.
    Buddy didn't play Hank Williams 40's style Country. Ever.

    Joseph Nania

    @Super.Chuck VERY WELL SAID - INDEED -BUDDY HOLLY- MAY HAVE BEEN ROOTED IN COUNTRY MUSIC - -BUT HE ADVANCED IT TO THE LEVEL THAT EVEN ELVIS LIKES AND LED WAY TO THE BEATLES BEING SO INSPIRED THAT THEY WANTED TO BE MUSICIANS

    Carl Smith

    @Super.Chuck I seriously doubt that considering his dad loved Hank SR

    Carl Smith

    @Super.Chuck he changed to rock bc of Elvis

  36. thefinalsolutionall

    Fuck Elvis. Accolades should instead go to the true pioneers Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, even Sam Phillips, not Elvis. King of Rock & Roll my ass. Elvis was a fat over-blown hack.

    Juan Carlos Cabrera Menendez

    sucio payaso a ti si que te joderan , otro bocazas de mierda .

    Bernardo Aguado

    What a goof lol

    Linda Dimira

    And he never wrote any songs.King of karaoke more like it.

  37. W103WWRW

    Happy Birthday In Heaven Buddy

    Joseph Nania

    BUDDY HOLLY IS UP THERE IN HEAVEN NOW 60 YEARS

  38. Harley Moore

    damn right see the music aint dead just sadly buddy is he still lives throughh his music!

  39. WCS

    I wear Buddy Holly style glasses... and I let people know it.

  40. elviseric

    HI
    Great version of this ROCK,N,ROLL classic
    Rock on
    ELVISERIC

  41. Robin Campbell

    When was this recorded?

  42. TiNaBLink

    I actually like Carl Perkins version the best. though, I also Love Buddy and Elvis.

  43. marok1935

    @easye1989 I didnt say elvis was Big(..?) made no other comment other than get a grip. I probably agree with you more than you know about Elvis, but, most of Elvis recordings from 54 to 1960 ,sound pretty good ,some unique. His voice & delivery(My Baby Left Me) was made for Rock&Roll in my opinion.To say he was hyped goes without saying. After1960, no interest. I love Rock&Roll with a passion. And i feel the same about Buddy Holly believe me, especially as a writer which Elvis wasnt.

  44. marok1935

    @easye1989 Get a grip on yourself !

  45. Jarad Tarantino

    @BBQFanNo1 nah, there is just one King. King Leonidas. The King of Kings.

  46. iPhonetique

    I prefer by miles away the Elvis Version.

  47. elvis presley

    not as good as the Carl Perkins BUT better then the Presley version

  48. no, as a matter of fact

    Best way he could be acknowledged is American Pie by Don McLean.
    By being one of three reason of song that turned upside-down usa radios, since it was the very first over-3-minutes-song to be played uncut, for audiences' requests.

  49. Michael Spencer

    dude my homework was to reserch him lol
