Black Velvet Song

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the victrola up high
Mama's dancing with baby on her shoulder
The Sun is setting like molasses in the sky.

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


epep

Black velvet in that little boy smile
Black velvet in that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.


epep

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


epep

Black velvet in that little boy smile
Black velvet in that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees

Black velvet if you please.

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?


epep

Black velvet in that little boy smile
Black velvet in that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.


ep epep

Black velvet in that little boy smile
Black velvet in that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.
If you please
...If you please


...If you please

There are other speculations that (Photo 2) was dated - August 14, 1977

I do not credit the exploitation of National Enquirer's intrusion after his death.
