Jamie Rogers on electro up high
Mamas dancing - baby on her shoulder
The sun is setting like molasses in the sky
 BA
The boy could sing and knew how to move  -  everything
 GD
 Always wanting more    -   it leaves you longing for
 AD
Chorus:         Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
A G Bm (or D/F# maybe?)
Black Velvet with that slow southern style
 AD
                A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
C7 B7 (no chord) E
Black Velvet - if you please
Up in Memphis the music is like a heat wave
White Lightnin' - bound to drive you wild
Mamas baby is in the heart of every school girl
Love me Tender leaves em cryin' in the isles
The way he moved it was a sin - so sweet and true
Always wanting more it leaves you longing for
-CHORUS-
 ABE
 Every word of every song that he sang is for you
A G C7 B7 (no chord) E
In a flash he was gone - it happened so soon - what could you do?
-solo-
-CHORUS- 2x
fade out on E with blues fills ( vocals repeat "if you please")
