Intro

Dm (8x)

Verse 1 - 0:22

Dm
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell;
Dm
Jimmy Rodgers on the Victrola 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 - 0:54

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 religion that'll bring you to your knees,
Bb      A              Dm
Black velvet, if you please.


Verse 2 - 1:23

Dm
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave,
Dm
White lightnin', 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.

Bridge

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.

What could you dooooooooooo?

Dm (8x)

Notes

  • The song is actually quite ingenious, which gave cause to several different transcriptions. I'm following Ultimate Guitar's Version 2
  • The original song us performed with a drop D-tuning: D A D G B E, so unless you change your tuning, it won't be really possible to play along with the recording
  • With a standard tuning, the key of D is pretty close.
  • This song sounds a lot better using barred chords, so that you can use the low e-string for strumming. The the charts below
  • The transition from E♭ to B♭ is probably easiest when using a shifted F for B♭. Otherwise, you have to move 6 frets on the fretboard.
Barred Dm-chord: Am-chord shifted 5 frets
Barred A-chord: F-chord shifted over 4 frets
Barred G-chord: F-chord shifted 2 frets
Barred A as C: Shift 3 frets
B♭=A♯: Vaak gemakkelijker: Een doorgeschoven F
