Lyrics The Black Velvet Band

In a neat little town they call Belfast
Apprentice to trade
I was bound
And many the hours sweet happiness
That I spent in that neat little town
But a sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from me friends and relations
Betrayed by the black velvet band
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair it hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black velvet band
I took a stroll down Broadway in meaning not long for to stay
When who should I meet but this pretty fair maid
Come traipsing along the highway
She was both fair and handsome
Her neck it was just like a swan
And her hair it hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black velvet band
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair it hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black velvet band
I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid and a gentleman passin' us by
Well I knew she meant the doing of him
By the look in her roguish black eye
A gold watch she took from his pocket
And placed it right into my hand
And the very first thing that I said was
What's this to the black velvet band?
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair it hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black velvet band
Before the judge and the jury next morning I had to appear
The judge he sais to me young man
Your case it is proven and clear
We'll give you seven years penal servitude
To be spent far away from the land
Far away from your friends and relations
Betrayed by the black velvet band
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair it hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black velvet band
So come all you jolly young fellows a warning take by me
When you are out on the town me lads beware of the pretty Colleens
They'll feed you with strong drink me lads 'till you are unable to stand
And the very first thing that you'll know is
You've landed in
Van Dieman's Land
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
Her neck it was just like a swan
And her hair it hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black velvet band
