    D                                                              A7
1. In a neat little town they call Belfast, apprentice to trade I was bound
    D                                          A                         D
And many an hours sweet happiness, have I spent in that neat  little town.

                                                                  A7
A sad misfortune came over me, which caused me to stray from the land
     D                                        A                         D
Far away from my friends and relations, betrayed by the black velvet band.

     CHORUS:
     D                                                                  A7
     Her eyes they shone like diamonds, you'd think she was queen of the land
      D                                      A                           D
     With her hair thrown over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band.

      D                                                       A7
2. As I went walking down Broadway, not meaning to stray very far
   D                                          A                      D
I met with this pretty young damsel, who was selling her trade in a bar. 

                                                             A7
She was both fair and handsome, her neck it was just like a swan's
        D                                A                           D
And her hair it hung over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band.

     CHORUS:
     D                                                                  A7
     Her eyes they shone like diamonds, you'd think she was queen of the land
      D                                      A                           D
     With her hair thrown over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band.

                                                                              A7
3. I took a stroll with this pretty fair maiden, met a gentleman as he passed by
       D                                        A                        D
Well I knew she meant the doing of him, by the look in her roguish black eye

                                                                    A7
A gold watch she took from his pocket, and slipped it right into my hand
        D                                  A                       D
On the very first day that I met her, bad luck to the black velvet band.

     CHORUS
     D                                                                  A7
     Her eyes they shone like diamonds, you'd think she was queen of the land
      D                                      A                           D
     With her hair thrown over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band.

   D                                                  A7
4. Before the judge and jury, next morning I had to appear,
        D                           A                         D
And the judge he says to me, " The case against you is quite clear.

                                                                 A7
Seven long years is your sentence, you're going to Van Dieman's Land
     D                                      A                          D
Far away from my friends and companions, betrayed by the black velvet band. 

     CHORUS
     D                                                                  A7
     Her eyes they shone like diamonds, you'd think she was queen of the land
      D                                      A                           D
     With her hair thrown over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band.

                                                                     A7
5. So come all you jolly young fellows, I'd have you take warning by me
     D                                    A                     D
and if you go out on the town, me boys, beware of them pretty colleens

                                                                    A7
They'll fill you with whiskey and porter, until you're not able to stand
        D                                            A                      D
And the very next thing you'll know, me lads, you've landed in Van Dieman's Land. 

     CHORUS
     D                                                                  A7
     Her eyes they shone like diamonds, I thought she was queen of the land
      D                                      A                           D
     Now I'm far from my friends companions, betrayed by the black velvet band.
