Christmas Eve With You (Bud Davidge) video

The radio says just a few more days
to Christmas Eve,
It's true because the Christmas blues
are hanging over me;
It's hard enough just missing you
each day throughout the year,
But missing you at Christmas is unfair.

I'd love to send a Christmas card,
the kind that says it all,
But you didn't tell me where you are,
and you don't even call;
Perhaps you'll hear this song of mine
and then you'll know it's true,
I'd love to spend this Christmas Eve with you.

You'll never know how much I miss
the time when you were mine,
And all the fun we used to have together
at Christmas time;
I hope when Pretty Paper plays
and Blue, Blue Christmas, too,
You'll realize how much I'm missing you.

I just finished shopping in
this busy shopping mall,
And somewhere in the noisy crowd
I heard the radio;
That voice is sure familiar
though they didn't say your name,
But I thought that I should call you
just the same.

The Christmas cards I sent each year
must have had a wrong address,
And the operator must have made
a big mistake, I guess;
But something 'bout that Christmas song
sure sounds a lot like you,
I can't believe that this is coming true.

Hello, honey, I sure miss what once was
yours and mine,
And all the fun we used to have
together at Christmas time;
Just heard you on the radio
and Blue, Blue Christmas, too,
I'd love to spend this Christmas Eve with you.

You'll never know how much I miss
the time when you were mine,
And all the fun we used to have
when it was Christmas time;
Together we can sing this song
and Pretty Paper, too,
I'd love to spend this
Christmas Eve with you.
It's so good to spend this Christmas Eve with you.

From Wikipedia;
Pretty Paper - while Willie Nelson was still getting his career started, he had a writing contract, and wrote the Pretty Paper Christmas song that Roy Orbison recorded. That release climbed to #15 on the U S charts in 1963. Sixteen years later, Willie Nelson made it the title track on his own Christmas album.
Blue Christmas - written by Billy Hayes and Jay W Johnson, this tale of unrequited love during the holidays is a longstanding staple of Christmas music, especially in the country genre. 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 bandleader Hugo Winterhalter and his orchestra; and one by bandleader Russ Morgan and his orchestra. Elvis Presley cemented the status of Blue Christmas as a rock-and-roll holiday classic by deleting one verse from Tubb's version and recording the remainder on his 1957 RCA Victor LP Elvis' Christmas Album. Presley's original 1957 version was released as a commercially-available single for the first time in 1964.
