Lyrics Black Velvet Band

In a neat little town they call Belfast
Apprenticed to trade
I was bound
Oh, many an hour's sweet happiness
Have 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 my 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 shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band
I took a stroll down Broadway
Oh meaning not long for to stay
When who should I meet but this pretty fair maid
Come a-traipsing along the highway
She was both fair and handsome
Her neck, it was just like a swan's
And her hair, it hung over her shoulder
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 shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band
So I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid
And a gentleman passing us by
Oh, I knew that she meant the undoing of him
By the look in her roguish black eye
A gold watch, she took from his pocket
And slipped it right into my hand
And the very first thing that I said was
Bad 'cess 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 shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band
Seven long years' penal servitude
I spent down in
Van Diemen's Land
Far away from my 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 shoulder
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 shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band
