Verse 1: (just pick these chords, folk style)
     G 
In a neat little town they call Prockton
                           D
Apprenticed in trade I was bound
    G       G/F#          Em
And many an hour of sweet happiness
  C             D           G
I spent in that neat little town
     G
Then bad misfortune befell me
                                D
And caused me to stray from the land
    G            G/GF           Em
Far away from my friends and companions
   C          D            G
To follow the black velvet band

Verse 2:
   G*
As I as out strolling one evening
                           D*
Not intending to stay very long
G       G/F#       Em
I met a frolicsome damsel
   C        D         G
As she came tripping along
  G*
A watch she pulled out her pocket
                             D*
And slipped it right into my hand
       G          G/F#         Em
On the very first night that I met her
    C           D            G
Bad luck to the black velvet band

Chorus:
    G
Her eyes, they shone like the diamond
                                 D
You'd think she was queen of the land
        G         G/F#     Em
And her hair hung over her shoulder 
     C       D            G
Tied up in a black velvet band

Verse 3:
  G*            
Before judge and jury next morning
                 D*
Both of us did appear
  G         G/F#        Em
A gentleman claimed his jewelry
        C            D      G
And the case against us was clear
    G*
Now seven long years transportation
                           D*
Right down to Van Dieman's land
    G            G/F#          Em
Far away from my friends and companions
   C           D            G
To follow this black velvet band

Verse 4: (use distorted open chords)
   G
So come all you jolly young fellows
                              D
I'll have you take warning by me
    G           G/F#       Em
Whenever you're out on the liquor
  C           D        G
Beware of the pretty Colleen
       G
She'll fill you with whiskey and porter 
                         D
Until you're not able to stand
        G         G/F#        Em
And the very next thing you'd know
       C         D            G
You've landed in Van Dieman's Land

Chorus x1
