E   Black Velvet - Alannah Myles

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell, Jimmy Rodgers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder, the sun is settin' like molasses in the sky

The boy could sing knew how to move, ev'rything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy smile, black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees, black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave, white Lightnin' bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of ev'ry school girl, "Love Me Tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle

The way he moved it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for
Ev'ry word of ev'ry song that he sang was for you E.gt. lick
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could you do?

Solo - Chorus x 2 - if you please x 2
