About this tab version

Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
My First Tab was needed because the other tabs didn't feel right and this one 
does. I used the 50th anniversary 2012 live rendition to interpret this song. With barney 
alive and Seán Cannon singing (he plays something like this on that show).

Cheers!

The Dubliners - Black Velvet Band


      G                                       C                      D
In a neat little town they call Belfast, Apprenticed to trade I was bound
     G                       Em          C             D           G
And many an hour of sweet happiness, I spent in that neat little town
      G                                   C                        D
Till sad misfortune came over me, Which caused me to stray from the land
      G                          Em        C             D           G
Far away from me friends and relations, Betrayed by the Black Velvet Band


[Chorus]

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


   G                                                  C                   D         
I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid, And the gentleman passing us by
   G                                 Em           C             D           G
I knew the meant she the impearing of me, By the look of her roguish blackeye
      G                                        C                        D
A goldwatch she took from his pocket, And she placed it right into me hand
       G                          Em           C               D           G
And the very first that I thought was, That looked like the black velvet band


[Chorus]

       G                             C                  D
Now before a judge and a jury, Next morning I had to appear
         G                       Em        C         D      G
Oh the judge he said to me Young man, Your case is proven clear 
      G                                                    C             D
You'll be given seven years of penal servitude, You'll be sentenced to a far away land.
     G                           Em           C            D            G
Far away from your friends and relations, Betrayed by the Black Velvet Band


[Chorus]

        G                                  C                  D
So come all ye jolly young fellows, And a warning you take by me
             G                           Em        C            D         G
When you are out on the town to drink me lads, Beware of the pretty colleens
    G                                                   C                   D
For they'll feed you with strong drinks "More Yeah", untill you are unable to stand
         G                               Em            C          D         G
And the very next thing that you know me lads, You've landed in Van Diemen's Land
