The song was first recorded by Doye O’Dell in 1948, and was popularized the following year in three separate recordings: one by country artist Ernest Tubb, one by musical conductor and arranger Hugo Winterhalter and his orchestra and chorus, and one by bandleader Russ Morgan and his orchestra (the latter featuring lead vocals by Morgan and backing vocals by singers credited as the Morganaires). Tubb’s version spent the first week of January 1950 at No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s Most-Played Juke Box (Country & Western) Records chart, while Winterhalter’s version peaked at No. 9 on Billboard’s Records Most Played by Disk Jockeys chart and Morgan’s version reached No. 11 on Billboard’s Best-Selling Pop Singles chart. Both Morgan’s and Winterhalter’s versions featured a shorter pop edit of the original lyrics. Also in 1950 crooner Billy Eckstine recorded his rendition, backed by the orchestra of Russ Case, with these shortened lyrics in a variation close to what is now the common standard for this song; the orchestral backing of this recording has often been wrongly accredited to Winterhalter.

Ernest Tubb – Blue Christmas Lyrics

I’ll have a blue Christmas without you I’ll be so blue thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t mean a thing dear if you’re not here with me
I’ll have a blue Christmas that’s certain
And when that blue heartache starts hurtin’
You’ll be doing all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue blue Christmas
I’ll have a blue Christmas I know dear
I hope your white Christmas brings you cheer
And when you say your prayers on this Christmas Eve
Will you feel the same dear as when you prayed with me
And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue mem’ries start calling
You’ll be doing all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue blue Christmas
