Blueberry Hill

The Fats Domino Jukebox
oldies 50s blues rock n roll rhythm and blues


"Blueberry Hill" was published in 1940, the music written by Vincent Rose, the lyrics by Al Lewis and Larry Stock. It was recorded six times in 1940. According to the Blueberry Hill Songfacts, Stock recalled that "One important publisher turned down Blueberry Hill, because, he claimed, blueberries don't grow on hills. I assured him I had picked them on hills as a boy, but nothing doing. So Chappell And Company bought the song and another hit was born." It became an international hit in 1956 for Fats Domino, reaching #2 on the Billboard Top 40 charts and becoming his biggest chart hit. Since that has become a rock and roll standard.


Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino (born February 26, 1928 in New Orleans, Louisiana, died October 24, 2017), was a classic R&B and rock and roll singer, songwriter and pianist. He was the best-selling African-American singer of the 1950s and early 1960s whose congenial, non threatening personality allowed him to succeed despite a period of deep-seated racial segregation. Domino is also a pianist with an individualistic bluesy style showing stride and boogie-woogie influences. Show more ...

Blueberry Hill - Fats Domino

I found my thrill
On blueberry hill
On blueberry hill
When I found you

The moon stood still
On blueberry hill
It lingered until
My dreams came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be

Though we're apart
You thought of me still
For you were my thrill
On blueberry hill

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made
Weren't only to be

Though we're apart
You thought of me still
For you were my thrill
On blueberry hill.

*Dave Bartholomew interview quote regarding 'Blueberry Hill';
'.. '. We couldn't remember the bridge in the middle of the song.
Fats' brother-in-law, Harrison, an old time musician was our
Bus driver as well as his manager. He gave us the words but
We didn't get the right chord system in the bridge. Fats could
Hardly get through it so Bunny took a scissor to the tape and put it together. It's a common practice now but that was a long time ago.
