It doesn't sound good in standard tuning to me though. Please correct the chords if you hear more precise alternates. Intro: [whispering unintelligible phrase "..? you enjoy yourself all day..?"] E (with blues fills) Mmmmm mmmm oooooo (ad lib) E Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell Jamie Rogers on electro up high Mamas dancing - baby on her shoulder The sun is setting like molasses in the sky B A The boy could sing and knew how to move - everything G D Always wanting more - it leaves you longing for A D Chorus: Black Velvet in that little boy's smile A G Bm (or D/F# maybe?) Black Velvet with that slow southern style A D 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- A B E 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")
