Alannah Myles - Black Velvet

Tuning - down half a step

Intro
Em

Verse
Em
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell;
Em
Jimmy Rodgers on the victola up high.
Em
Mama's dancin' baby on her shoulders,
Em
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky.

Bridge
Bsus4         B                Asus4 A
The boy could soon know how to move  everything;
G      Gsus4         Dsus2
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Chorus
Am                   D
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile.
Am                        F             C
Black velvet in with that slow southern style.
Am                    D
A new religon that'll bring you to your knees,
C     B              Em
Black velvet, if you please.

Verse 2
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave,
White lightning, bound to drive you wild.
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl,
Love me tender leaves 'em cryin' in the aisles.

Bridge
The way he moved it was a sin so sweet and true,
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Chorus

Middle
Am                  B                         Em
Every word of every song that he sang was for you.
Am                F                    C
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon.
B              Em
What could you do?
