[Intro]

E  
(with blues fills)
Mmmmm     mmmm    oooooo  (ad lib)


[Verse]

E
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
E
Jamie Rogers on electro up high
E
Mamas dancing - baby on her shoulder
E
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


[Chorus]

A                     D
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
A                       G            Bm        
Black Velvet with that slow southern style
A                      D
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
 C7       B7        N.C.         E
Black Velvet   -   if you please


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

A                     D
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
A                       G            Bm        
Black Velvet with that slow southern style
A                      D
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
 C7       B7        N.C.         E
Black Velvet   -   if you please


[Bridge]

A                   B                         E
Every word of every song that he sang is for you
A                  G          C7         B7      N.C.                E
In a flash he was gone  -  it happened so soon    -    what could you do?


[Chorus]

A                     D
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
A                       G            Bm        
Black Velvet with that slow southern style
A                      D
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
 C7       B7        N.C.         E
Black Velvet   -   if you please

A                     D
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
A                       G            Bm        
Black Velvet with that slow southern style
A                      D
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
 C7       B7        N.C.         E
Black Velvet   -   if you please

the song is not in E major, but E minor;

so note "Em" and "Am" instead of "E" and "A"!

The "G" and "Bm" in the chorus are wrong: you must play "F" and "C" instead! And do not use "C7" before "B7"!

And here is another way to play :

Bsus4 B Asus4 A A7 Gsus2
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Gsus2 G Dsus4 D
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for...

I like It just the way it is. Sounds great on Acoustic. Haven't tried it on Electric and don't care to. "Nice simple and to the point!" I don't care if its not Bluesy enough or Jazz overriden. You did what I, you and others seem to like. Just sit down lay back and play it over and over. As for the ones who posted negative to your rendition. I noticed that some of their corections where to the original format. To those people I have to say everyone has to go there own way so just give'm some room to grow!
