[Verse 1]
Dm
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Dm
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Dm
Mama's dancing with baby on her shoulder
Dm
The Sun is setting like molasses in the sky.
Asus4 A                            Gsus4 G      Fsus4 F
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything.
                      Csus4 C
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

[Chorus]
Gm7                   Csus4 C
Black velvet in that little boy's smile

Black velvet with that slow southern style

A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Bb7   A7            Dm
Black velvet if you please.

[Verse 2]
Dm
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave
Dm
White lightning, bound to drive you wild.
Dm
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl
Dm
"Love me tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
Asus4 A                            Gsus4 G      Fsus4 F
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true.

A new religion that'll bring you to your knees

Black velvet if you please.

[Bridge]
Gm                  A                         Dm7
Every word of every song that he sang was for you.
Gm                 Eb                    Bb7
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon,
   A7           Dm
What could you do?

[Chorus]
Gm7                   Csus4 C
