Black Velvet Lyrics

Verse 1

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high Mama’s dancin’ with a 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?

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

If you please

If you please

If you please
