Black Velvet Lyrics

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with 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

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music's like a heatwave
White lightening, 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

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya 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?

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please
If you please, if you please, if you please

I heard her song for the first time, when I was reading at 5th grade; it moved me very much then. I felt like crying & did actually cry & dance with a big heart! She's my true INSPIRATION!

I'm listening to it right now and it's definitely Jimmy Rodgers. Kenny wasn't around when Elvis was a kid. Great song.

This song is all about Elvis. It was Jimmy Rogers. My mother remembers this song coming out and the meaning behind it.

It's actually Jimmie Rodgers because Elvis' mother is listening on a Victrola while holding Elvis. Jimmie was considered the father of country music.
