Glenn Miller first popularized the song (with vocal by Ray Eberle) in a recording (Bluebird 10768) that #2 on Billboard's Best-Selling Singles chart.

Elvis recorded Blueberry Hill on January 19, 1957, at Radio Recorders. Take #9 was chosen by RCA for release.

Lyrics:

I found my thrill on Blueberry hill
On Blueberry Hill where I found you
The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill
It lingered until my dreams came true
 
1. The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be yeah
 
2. Though we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill
 
1. 2. (repeat)
