     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

So come all ye jolly young fellows a warning take from me

Whenever you're into the liquor me lads beware of the pretty colleen

             G                                                        D
For they'll fill you with whiskey and porter till you are not able to stand

        G                        Em                  C         D            G
And the very next thing that you know me lads you've landed in Van Daemon's Land
