Mississippi
In the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers
On the victrola up high
Mama’s dancing
With 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 and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring y’all 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 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 smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring y’all 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 smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring y’all to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring y’all to your knees
Black velvet
If you please
If you please
If you please
If you please
