Carl Perkins: vocal, guitar
New York, March 14, 1956
For the first time within memory, a country and western artist has scored chart-wise in all three musical categories.
Carl Perkins, whose "Blue Suede Shoes" disk this week showed up on the pop, country and western and rhythm and blues charts, is the artist in question. His disk hit No. 14 on the pop chart, No. 9 on the r&b chart and was well up in the top 10 on the country chart.  
Eine Strophe von "Blue Suede Shoes" fand nicht bei allen, die es nachsangen Gefallen. Sie wurde mannigfach abgeändert oder gleich ganz weggelassen.

Slander my name all over the place
And do anything, that you wanna do
But, 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 fruit jar,
Do anything, that you wanna do
But, honey, lay off of them shoes.”
