BLACK VELVET BAND – LUKE KELLY
TAB’S BY WOMPTON

[VERSE 1]
      G                                                            D    D7
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

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


[VERSE 2]
     G                                                       D    D7
I took a stroll down Broadway, meaning not long for to stay
     G                          Em                       C         D         G
When who should I meet but this pretty fair maid, come a-trampsing along the highway
G                                                           D    D7
She was both fair and handsome, her neck it was just like a swan
        G                     Em             C           D            G
And her hair it hung over her shoulder, tied up with the Black Velvet Band

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


[VERSE 3]
      G                                                                D    D7
I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid, and a gentleman passing us by
  G                      Em                  C           D             G
I knew what she meant to do with him, by the look in her roguish black eye
  G                                                                D    D7
A gold watch she took from his pocket, and placed it right into my hand
     G                         Em            C         D            G
And the very next thing that I knew was, I’d landed in Van Daemon’s Land

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


[VERSE 4]
G                                                    D     D7
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 has proven clear"
      G                                                               D    D7
We’ll give seven years penal servitude, to be spent far away from the land
     G                         Em           C             D            G
Far away from your friends and companions betrayed by the Black Velvet Band

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


[VERSE 5]
    G                                                  D    D7
So come all you jolly young fellows, a warning take by me
     G                  Em             C             D         G
When you are out on the town, me boys, beware of the pretty colleen
             G                          C   G                         D    D7
For they'll feed you with strong drink, mar yeah!, till you unable to stand
        G                        Em              C         D            G
And the very next thing that you know is, you've landed in Van Daemon's Land

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