Verse 1:
Em Em
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell,
Jimmy Rogers on the Victr'la up high,
mama's dancing with baby on her shoulders,
the sun is setting like molasses in the sky.

Bsus Bsus B B Asus Asus A A
The boy could sing, knew how to move everything,
Gsus Gsus G G Dsus Dsus D D
always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Chorus:
Am7 Am7 D D
Black velvet and that little boy smile,
Am7 Am7 F F C C
black velvet and that slow southern style,
Am7 Am7 D D
a new religion that'll bring you to your knees,
C7 C7 C6 C6 Em Em
black velvet, if you please.

Verse 2:
Em Em
Up in Memphis the music's like a heatwave,
"White lightning" bound to drive you wild,
mama's baby's in the heart of every schoolgirl,
"Love me tender" leaves'em crying in the aisle.

Bsus Bsus B B Asus Asus A A
The way he moved it was so sweet and true,
Gsus Gsus G G Dsus Dsus D D
alway wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Chorus:

Em Em
Every word and every song that he sang was for you,
in a flash he was gone, it happened so soon.
What could you do?

Chorus:
