Black Velvet Band

      F                                                             G
In a neat little town they call Belfast apprenticed to trade I was bound
     F                     Am          F             G           F
And many an hour of sweet happiness I spent in that neat little town
      F                                                           G
Till bad misfortune came over me and caused me to stray from the land
      F                        Am          F             G           F
Far away from me friends and relations me followed the Black Velvet Band

Her eyes they shown like the diamonds
You'd think she was queen of the land
         F                   Am
And her hair hung over her shoulder
     F           G           F
Tied up with a Black Velvet Band

     F                                                       G
Well I went out strolling one evening not meaning to go very far
        F                      Am              F         G         F
When I met with a fickle-some damsel she was plying her trade in a bar
        F                                                          G
When a watch she took from a cutomer and slipped it right into me hand
         F                Am             F             G           F
And the law it came and arrested me bad luck to your Black Velvet Band

      F                                                G
This mornin' before judge and jury a trial I had to appear
         F                       Am          F            G             F
And the judge he says "me young fellow" the case against you is quite clear
      F                                                            G
And seven long years is your sentence you're going to Van Daemons Land
     F                          Am            F          G            F
Far away from your friends and relations and follow the Black Velvet Band

    F                                                              F
So come all ye jolly young fellows I'll have you take warnin' from me
    F                    Am               F            G         F
Whenever you're into the liquor me lads beware of the pretty colleen
             F                                                          G
For they'll fill you with whiskey and porter till you are not able to stand
         F                        Am                  F         G            F
And the very next thing that you know me lads you've landed in Van Daemon's Land
