Verse 1

 E         G#m                 C#m
Night was dark, your skin was dark
                F#               A
your eyes were shining bright
           D       C#m     A  B      A
Oh, black beauty, close in my heart
 E          G#         C#m                F#           A
I was King Solomon who held his Queen of Sheba tight
           D      C#m        F#
Oh, black beauty held in my arms

Bridge

C#m          A                 F#           D#/Eb
How we were told love was not meant for us
              G#             C#
Two different worlds stepped apart
F#            B
Heart against heart

Verse 2

 E      G#m          C#m          F#      A
But we knew where to find an opportunity
    D         C#m     A   B     A
Far away where no one was near
 E       G#m           C#m              F#      A
We could meet there at night and with impunity
          D       C#m           F#
Oh, black beauty, love without fear

Bridge

A             F#       A    B           C#
Our love was wonderful, so young and so pure
A           F#
I held your trembling hand
B        G#
I was so sure
C#m           C/C#m          B        F#
Then when our lips met there was no returning
     A                  E    B
The fire was burning in our hearts
