This song is pretty easy, its just the timing thats tricky(ish) if you sing along at the 
of original.
I have merely merged two versions together and added bits i thought were missing etc.its 
perfect, but hey...


[Verse]

           G                          C
Well, in a neat little town they call Belfast,
   A7           D7
apprentice to trade I was bound
  G                 Em
Many an hours sweet happiness,
         C           D7            G
have I spent in that neat little town
                      C              A7              D7
A sad misfortune came over me, which caused me to stray from the land
 G                            Em           C           
          G
Far away from my friends and relations, betrayed by the black velvet band
  G                        C
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
                                D7
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

 G                                         C         D7
I took a stroll down Broadway, meaning not long for to stay
     G                                                            D7        G
When who should I meet but this pretty fair maid comes a tripping along the highway
 G                                         C         D7
She was both fair and handsome, her neck it was just like a swans
  G                                                            D7        G
And her hair it hung over her shoulder, tied up with a black velvet band


[Chorus]

G                                        
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
                    C         D7 
I thought her the queen of the land
G    
And her hair it hung over her shoulder
                    C         D7 
Tied up with a black velvet band


[Verse]

 G                                         C         D7
I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid, and a gentleman passing us by
    G                                                            D7        G
Well I knew she meant the doing of him, by the look in her roguish black eye
 G                                         C         D7
A goldwatch she took from his pocket and placed it right in to my hand
    G                                                            D7        G
And the very first thing that I said was bad luck to the black velvet band


[Chorus]

G                                        
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
                    C         D7 
I thought her the queen of the land
G    
And her hair it hung over her shoulder
                    C         D7 
Tied up with a black velvet band


[Verse]

 G                                         C         D7
Before the judge and the jury, next morning I had to appear
G                                                    D7        G
The judge he says to me: "Young man, your case it is proven clear
G                                         C         D7
We'll give you seven years penal servitude, to be spent faraway from the land
G                                                    D7        G
Far away from your friends and companions, betrayed by the black velvet band"


[Chorus]

G                                        
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
                    C         D7 
I thought her the queen of the land
G    
And her hair it hung over her shoulder
                    C         D7 
Tied up with a black velvet band


[Verse]

 G                                         C         D7
So come all you jolly young fellows a warning take by me
G                                                    D7        G
When you are out on the town me lads, beware of them pretty colleens
G                                         C         D7
For they feed you with strong drink, "Oh yeah", 'til you are unable to stand
G                                                    D7        G
And the very next thing that you'll know is you've landed in Van Diemens Land


[Chorus]

G                                        
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
                    C         D7 
I thought her the queen of the land
G    
And her hair it hung over her shoulder
                    C         D7 
Tied up with a black velvet band
