Verse 1: Em Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell; Em Jimmy Rodgers on the victola up high. Em Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulders, Em The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky. B A The boy could soon know how to move everything; G D Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.Verse 2: Em Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave, Em White lightening, bound to drive you wild. Em Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl, Em Love me tender leaves 'em cryin' in the aisles. B A The way he moved it was a sin so sweet and true, G D Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for. Chorus Break: Am B Em Every word of every song that he sang was for you. Am D# C7 B7 In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon. Em What could you do? Chorus Solo EmAm D Black Velvet in that little boy's smile. Am F C Black velvet in with that slow southern style.
