Blue Suede Shoes
Carl Perkins 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

But you can knock me down, step in my face
Slander my name all over the place
And do anything that you want to do
But uh uh honey lay off of my shoes
And don't you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Oh let's go cat

But 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 honey lay off of them shoes
And don't you, step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Rock

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 it's blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes yeah
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes baby
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

First song in history to go top 5 in the pop, country & western and R&B charts at the same time.  And this man still doesn't get the credit he deserves!

Rickey Keeton

@R M I really like Carl Perkins, but I think LUTHER Perkins was a big influence on Kohnny Cash’s sound.

More like top 3. It was number-1 on the Country charts, number-2 on the Pop charts and number-3 on the R&B charts all at the same time. It was the first song to ever accomplish anything like that in the history of recorded music. Blues Suede Shoes is still one of the greatest songs ever recorded in the history of Rock and Roll.

@Albert Tatlock He also wrote the song "So Wrong"which was a big hit for Patsy Cline in 1962 and Daddy Sang Bass which was a number-1 hit for Johnny Cash in 1969.

@jim quinn Johnny can stir the soul but Carl gets the toes tapping and the legs shaking for sure.

Saw him at the Albert Hall with Johnny Cash....I loved Johnny Cash but Carl stole the show...fantastically understated

I prefer Carl’s version to Elvis, I prefer his beat.

Gerald Danford Jr

I like Carl Perkins and Elvis Presleys version of this song. I actually just found out today that Blue Suede Shoes was originally Carl Perkins song. I actually hadn't heard of Carl Perkins until today although I wasn't born until the Summer of 1967.

They are so different! Can't beat Elvis on ballads. He has that superstar aura around him which makes people crown him as the king. At the same time Carl has something which makes me love him much much more. He has the feeling, the vibe.

Salvador Ornelas

Carl was a better overall performer, vocals, songwriter and guitar player.
