Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Walk around your corner, see saw your lady
Join all your hands circle left around the ring
Men star right, go walkin' around now
Left allemande, weave the ring
Black velvet, that slow southern style
Swing and promenade there
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet, if you please


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go half way around the ring
Touch 1/4, walk & dodge you do
Pass thru, trade by, swing thru now
Boys run, couples circulate
Bend the line, star thru, pass thru
Swing the corner lady round, you promenade the ring man
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet, if you please


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain the ring, turn her with a 1/2 sashay
Rollaway and circle left
Allemande left, dosado,
Allemande left and weave the ring
Black velvet, that slow southern style
Swing and promenade there
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet, if you please

Black Velvet Lyrics ID: 513

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 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 lightening, 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's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya 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's smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

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

Lyrics by Christopher Ward and David Tyson.
Recorded by Alannah Myles.
