Black Velvet
by Allanah Miles

Mississippi, in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers, with electrode up high
Mama's dancing, baby on her shoulders
Sun is setting like molasses in the sky
The way she showed him how to move, everything
Always wanting more
He had the longing for

Black velvet in that little boys smile
Black velvet in that soft southern style
A new religion that will bring her to her 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 school girl 
"Love Me Tender" leaves'em dryin' their eyes 
The way he moved it was a sin, so sweet and true 
Always wanting more 
He had the longing for 


Every word of every song that he sang was fo you 
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon 
What could you do
