Black Velvet  Alannah Myles

[D#m]Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
[D#m]Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
[D#m]Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
[D#m]The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky
[A#]The boy could sing, knew how to m[C#]ove, everything
[B]Always wanting more, [C#]he'd leave you longing for...
 
 ------------------------------------------------------

CHORUS:
[G#]Black velvet and [C#]that little boy's smile
[G#]Black velvet with that s[B]low southern s[F#]tyle
[G#]A new religion that'll b[C#]ring ya to your knees
[B]Black velvet if [A#]you ple[D#]ase...
 
 ------------------------------------------------------

VERSE:
[D#m]Up in Memphis the music's like a heatwave
[D#m]White lightening, bound to drive you wild
[D#m]Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl
[D#m]"Love me tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
[A#]The way he moved, it was a sin, s[C#]o sweet and true
[B]Always wanting more, [C#]he'd leave you longing for...
 
 ------------------------------------------------------

CHORUS:
[G#]Black velvet and [C#]that little boy's smile
[G#]Black velvet with that s[B]low southern s[F#]tyle
[G#]A new religion that'll b[C#]ring ya to your knees
[B]Black velvet if [A#]you ple[D#]ase...
 
 ------------------------------------------------------

BRIDGE:
[G#]Every word of every s[A#]ong that he sang was for you[D#m]
[G#]In a flash he was go[C#]ne, it happened so so[B]on, what could you [D#]do?
 
 ------------------------------------------------------

GUITAR SOLO:
Em (like intro)
