Black Velvet Lyrics

Black Velvet by Myles Alannah  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Black Velvet Allanah Myles (Black Velvet)
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin', there's a baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for
Chorus:
Black velvet in that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave
White lightening, bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of every schoolgirl
"Love me tender" leaves them cryin' in the aisles
The way he moved, it was a song, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for
Chorus:
Every word of every song he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon
What could you do?
Chorus:
Chorus:
