Alannah Myles - Black Velvet chords

      
This is an adaptation of the tab done by rjmcpher@uci.edu. 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
video.

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 -CHORUS-
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?
-solo- -CHORUS- 2x fade out on E with blues fills ( vocals repeat "if you please")
