Title: Black Velvet
Artist: Allanah Myles
Transcribed: rjmcpher@uci.edu  

Notes: The recording is tuned a half-step flat (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
             but I am writing this as if in standard tuning.  
             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")
