This is an adaptation of the tab done by email@example.com. I have found no decent tabs
this song which have both the chords and the lyrics accurately represented so here goes.
folks have this in a minor key. It is sung in a minor key but it does not seem the minor
note (G in the key of E) is even actually played. The Dm tabs? Puhleeze. Watch the
Notes: The recording is tuned a half-step flat (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) but I am writing this as if in standard tuning.
It doesn't sound good in standard tuning to me though.
Please correct the chords if you hear more precise alternates.
Intro: [whispering unintelligible phrase "..? you enjoy yourself all day..?"]
E (with blues fills)
Mmmmm mmmm oooooo (ad lib)
EMississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmie Rogers on the victrola up high
Mamas dancing - baby on her shoulder
The sun is setting like molasses in the sky
B+4 B7 a+4 A7The boy could sing and knew how to move - everything
G DAlways wanting more - it leaves you longing for
Am DChorus: Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
Am F C Black Velvet with that slow southern style
Am D A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
C7 B7 E Black Velvet - if you please
Up in Memphis the music is like a heat wave
White Lightnin' - bound to drive you wild
Mamas baby is in the heart of every school girl
Love me Tender leaves em cryin' in the isles
The way he moved it was a sin - so sweet and true
Always wanting more it leaves you longing for
Am Bm EEvery word of every song that he sang was for you
Am F C7 B7 EIn a flash he was gone - it happened so soon - what could you do?
fade out on E with blues fills ( vocals repeat "if you please")
