BONNIE RAITT


Black Velvet Lyrics

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancing, there's a 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

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 lightning, bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of every schoolgirl
Love me tender leaves them crying in the aisles
The way he moved it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

Black velvet in that little boy's 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

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

Black velvet in that little boy's 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
