Verse 1: (just pick these chords, folk style)
In a neat little town they call Prockton
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
Then bad misfortune befell me
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
