Black Velvet Lyrics

[Intro: Whispered]
[?]

[Verse 1]

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmie Rodgers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky

[Pre-Chorus]

The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

[Chorus]

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

[Verse 2]

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 cryin’ in the aisle

[Pre-Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

[Bridge]

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?

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

[Outro]

If you please
If you please
If you please
