Goodbye Priscilla (Bye Bye Baby Blue) is a song written by Deanna Summers, David Saxton and Ben Shaw. It was published by Silicon Music, BMI in 1977 and first recorded by Gene Summers that same year. The song was initially released by Tear Drop Records as a one-sided, promotional, single and later re-issued with "World Of Illusion" as the flip side (#TD 3405).
"Goodbye Priscilla" was written as a tribute to Elvis and Priscilla Presley. (D Magazine, January 18, 1978 issue, page 18 "Upfront" column, published by Dallas Southwest Media Corporation) The "Goodbye Priscilla" 45 is now a much-sought-after collectible and has been issued on several Elvis "tribute" compilation albums and CDs. When "Goodbye Priscilla (Bye Bye Baby Blue)" was first released there was a controversy about which Priscilla it was written for: Priscilla Presley, or Priscilla Davis, wife of T. Cullen Davis and central figure in the T. Cullen Davis murder trials. In his book "Blood Will Tell: The Murder Trials Of Cullen Davis" author Gary Cartwright credits the song (page 199) as referring to Priscilla Davis, wife of T. Cullen Davis.

“The colicky baby who becomes calm, the quiet infant who throws temper tantrums at two, the wild child at four who becomes serious and studious at six all seem to surprise their parents. It is difficult to let go of ones image of a child, say goodbye to the child a parent knows, and get accustomed to this slightly new child inhabiting the known childs body.”
—Ellen Galinsky (20th century)
