Christopher Ward – Black Velvet tab

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rodgers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

/ Em - - - / / / / B7 - A7sus4 A7 / G7sus4 G7 Dsus4 - / 

Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet and that slow Southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please

/ Am - D - / Am - F C / Am - D - / C7 B7 Em - - - /

Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave
White Lightnin' bound to drive you wild
Mama's Baby's in the heart of every school girl
Love Me Tender leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for


Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could you do?

/ Am - B7 - Em7 - - - / Am - F - C - B7 - Em7 - - - /

{Refrain twice}

If you please, if you please, if you please
