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

[Verse]
     G
In a neat little town they call Belfast
C                          D
Apprenticed to trade I was bound
G                   Em
Many an hours sweet happiness
       C             D           G
Have I spent in that neat little town
   G
A sad misfortune came over me
      C                            D
Which caused me to stray from the land
     G                         Em
Far away from my friends and relations
  C              D            G
Betrayed by the black velvet band

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

[Verse]
G
I took a stroll down Broadway
 C                       D
Meaning not long for to stay
 G                                  Em
When who should I meet but this pretty fair maid
C               D         G
Come a trapsing along the highway
G
She was both fair and handsome
C                           D
Her neck it was just like a swan's
         G                     Em
And her hair it hung over her shoulder
    C          D             G
Tied up with a black velvet band

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

[Verse]
G
I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid
C                         D
And a gentleman passing us by
G                          Em
Well I knew she meant the doing of him
C                  D             G
By the look in her roguish black eye
G
A gold watch she took from his pocket
C                             D
And slipped it right in to my hand
G                             Em
And the very first thing that I said was
C               D             G
Bad 'cess to the black velvet band

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

[Bridge]
 G
Seven long years penal servitude
C                                D
To be spent down in Van Diemen's Land
G                           Em
Far away from my friends and relations
C                D            G
Betrayed by the black velvet band

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