Dubliners - Black Velvet Band Lyrics
The Black Velvet Band Lyrics | The High Kings | The Dubliners
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high Mama's dancing' with a 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 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. 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 If you please If you please If you please.

Black Velvet Band Lyrics
In a neat little town they call Belfast Apprentice to trade I was bound Oh many an hours sweet happiness Have I spent in that neat little town. But a sad misfortune came over me Which caused me to stray from the land Far away from my friends and relations Betrayed by the black velvet band. Her eyes they shone like diamonds I thought her the queen of the land And her hair it hung over her shoulder Tied up with a black velvet band.
