Chords and lyrics

difficulty: expert



This Version can also be played unbarred, but then it sounds horrible, so try out

the bar chords before you discard them. The advantage of the bar chords is you can

use an awesome dead beat strum with them that you can't with the normal chords,

I'll leave both here.

Verse 1

Dm

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell;

Dm

Jimmy Rodgers on the victola up high.

Dm

Mama's dancin' baby on her shoulders,

Dm

The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky.

A                               G

The boy could soon know how to move everything;

F                   C

Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

*Chorus*

Gm                     C

Black Velvet in that little boy's smile.

Gm                         Eb   Bb

Black velvet in with that slow southern style.

Gm                      C

A new religon that'll bring you to your knees,

Bb      A              Dm

Black velvet, if you please.

Verse 2

Dm

Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave,

Dm

White lightening, bound to drive you wild.

Dm

Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl,

Dm

Love me tender leaves 'em cryin' in the aisles.

A                         G

The way he moved it was a sin so sweet and true,

F                   C

Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

*Chorus*

Break

Gm                   A                        Dm

Every word of every song that he sang was for you.

Gm                 Eb                   Bb

In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon.

A               Dm-

What could you dooooooooooo-?

*Chorus* repeat
