Black Velvet Band chords
Irish Folk

G DIn a neat little town they call Belfast apprenticed to trade I was bound
G Em C D GAnd many an hour of sweet happiness I spent in that neat little town
G DTill bad misfortune came over me and caused me to stray from the land
G Em C D GFar away from me friends and relations me followed the Black Velvet Band
GHer eyes they shown like the diamonds
DYou'd think she was queen of the land
G EmAnd her hair hung over her shoulder
C D GTied up with a Black Velvet Band
G DWell I went out strolling one evening not meaning to go very far
G Em C D GWhen I met with a fickle-some damsel she was plying her trade in a bar
G DWhen a watch she took from a customer and slipped it right into me hand
G Em C D GAnd the law it came and arrested me bad luck to your Black Velvet Band
GHer eyes they shown like the diamonds
DYou'd think she was queen of the land
G EmAnd her hair hung over her shoulder
C D GTied up with a Black Velvet Band
G DThis mornin' before judge and jury a trial I had to appear
G Em C D GAnd the judge he says "me young fellow" the case against you is quite clear
G DAnd seven long years is your sentence you're going to Van Daemons Land
G Em C D GFar away from your friends and relations and follow the Black Velvet Band
GHer eyes they shown like the diamonds
DYou'd think she was queen of the land
G EmAnd her hair hung over her shoulder
C D GTied up with a Black Velvet Band
G DSo come all ye jolly young fellows I'll have you take warnin' from me
G Em C D GWhenever you're into the liquor me lads beware of the pretty colleen
G DFor they'll fill you with whiskey and porter till you are not able to stand
G Em C D GAnd the very next thing that you know me lads you've landed in Van Daemon's Land
GHer eyes they shown like the diamonds
DYou'd think she was queen of the land
G EmAnd her hair hung over her shoulder
C D GTied up with a Black Velvet Band
