Guitar chords with lyrics

Title: Black Velvet
Transcribed: rjmcpher@uci.edu

Notes: The recording is tuned a half-step flat (A chord diagramEb MajorEb A chord diagramAbAb A chord diagramDbDb A chord diagramGbGb A chord diagramBb majorBb A chord diagramEb MajorEb)
             but I am writing this as if in standard tuning.
             It doesn't sound good in standard tuning to me though.
              Please correct the chords if you hear more precise alternates.
Intro: [whispering unintelligible phrase "..?  you enjoy yourself all day.. "]
