Black Velvet Band

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

     G 
Her eyes they shown like diamonds 
                               D 
I thought her the queen of the land 
         G                    Em 
And her hair it hung over her shoulder 
     C         D7           G 
Tied up with a Black Velvet Band 

Interlude:
C   D7   G 

     G                                               D 
I took a walk down Broadway, meaning not long for to stay 
G                                Em                     C         D        G 
When who should I meet, but this pretty fair maid comes trampsin' along my way    
G                                                           D 
She was both fair and handsome, her neck it was just like a swan 
         G                    Em        C              D7           G          
And her hair it hung over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band 

    G 
Her eyes they shown like diamonds 
                               D 
I thought her the queen of the land 
         G                    Em 
And her hair it hung over her shoulder 
     C         D7           G 
Tied up with a Black Velvet Band 

Interlude:
C   D7   G 

G                                                                    D 
I took a walk with this pretty fair maid, and a gentleman passing us by 
       G                       Em                      C           D             G 
Well I knew that she meant the drewin' of him, by the look in her roguish black eye 
        G                                                         D                            
A gold watch she took from his pocket and placed it right into me hand 
        G                       Em           C           D            G 
And the very next thing that I said was bad 'cess to the Black Velvet Band 

    G 
Her eyes they shown like diamonds 
                               D 
I thought her the queen of the land 
         G                    Em
And her hair it hung over her shoulder 
     C         D7           G 
Tied up with a Black Velvet Band 

Interlude:
C   D7   G 
   G                                                 D 
Before the judge and the jury, next morning I had to appear 
         G               Em                   C          D            G 
And the judge he says to me, "young man, your case it is proven quite clear 
G                                                                            D 
Aye you get seven long years penal servitude, to be spent off in Van Daemons Land 
     G                          Em          C             D7           G 
Far away from your friends and relations, betrayed by the Black Velvet Band" 

     G 
Her eyes they shown like diamonds 
                               D 
I thought her the queen of the land 
        G                     Em 
And her hair it hung over her shoulder 
     C         D7           G 
Tied up with a Black Velvet Band
