This Version can also be played unbarred, but then it sounds horrible, so try out
the bar chords before you discard them. The advantage of the bar chords is you can
use an awesome dead beat strum with them that you can't with the normal chords,
I'll leave both here.

Verse 1
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell;
Jimmy Rodgers on the victola up high.
Mama's dancin' baby on her shoulders,
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky.
A                               G
The boy could soon know how to move everything;
F                   C
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Gm                     C
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile.
Gm                         D#   A#
Black velvet in with that slow southern style.
Gm                      C
A new religon that'll bring you to your knees,
A#      A              Dm
Black velvet, if you please.

Verse 2
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave,
White lightening, bound to drive you wild.
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl,
Love me tender leaves 'em cryin' in the aisles.
A                         G
The way he moved it was a sin so sweet and true,
F                   C
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.


Gm                   A                        Dm
Every word of every song that he sang was for you.
Gm                 D#                   A#
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon.
A               Dm-
What could you dooooooooooo-?

*Chorus* repeat

good work. however, in music you don't use the same letter twice.
since you have a Dm, you can't use D#, instead, call it Eb.
since you use A, you can't use A#, call it Bb.... okay?
same chords, different name.
