Jamie Rogers on electro up high
Mamas dancing - baby on her shoulder
The sun is setting like molasses in the sky
The [B]boy could sing and knew how to m[A]ove  -  everything
[G]Always wanting more    [D]-   it leaves you longing for
Chorus:         [A]Black Velvet in that l[D]ittle boy's smile
A G Bm (or D/F# maybe?)
Black Velvet with that slow southern style
                [A]A new religion that'll [D]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
[A]Every word of every [B]song that he sang is for y[E]ou
A G C7 B7 (no chord) E
In a flash he was gone - it happened so soon - what could you do?
fade out on E with blues fills ( vocals repeat "if you please")
