Black Velvet Elvis

Mr. and Mrs. Elvis

Mr. and Mrs. Elvis

See Elvis’ picture on fabric that I bought from Graceland on my trip there.

Black Velvet

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

Chorus

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 heatwave
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

Chorus

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?

Chorus x2

If you please… x3
