In a neat little town they call Belfast apprenticed to trade I was bound 
G                     Em               C             D           G 
Many an hour of sweet happiness have I spent in that neat little town 
  G                                                              D    D7 
A sad misfortune came over me, which caused me to stray from the land 
     G                       Em           C               D            G 
Far away from my friends and relations me betrayed by the Black Velvet Band
