Well, in a [G]neat little town they call Belfast,
apprentice to [C]trade I was [D7]bound
and [G]many an hours sweet [Em]happiness,
have I [Am]spent in that [D7]neat little [G]town

A [G]sad misfortune came [C]over [G]me,  
which caused me to [C]stray from the [D7]land   
Far [G]away from my friends and [Em]relations,
bet[Am]rayed by the [D7]black velvet [G]band

Her [G]eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the [C]queen of the [D7]land   
And her [G]hair it hung over her [Em]shoulder
Tied [Am]up with a [D7]black velvet [G]band

I [G]took a stroll down Broadway,
meaning not [C]long for to [D7]stay   
When [G]who should I meet but this [Em]pretty fair maid
comes a [Am]tripping [D7]along the [G]highway

She [G]was both fair and handsome,
her neck it was [C]just like a [D7]swans
And her [G]hair it hung over her [Em]shoulder,
tied [Am]up with a [D7]black velvet [G]band

Her [G]eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the [C]queen of the [D7]land   
And her [G]hair it hung over her [Em]shoulder
Tied [Am]up with a [D7]black velvet [G]band

I [G]took a stroll with this [C]pretty fair [G]maid,
and a gentleman [C]passing us [D7]by   
Well I [G]knew she meant the [Em]doing of him,
by the [Am]look in her [D7]roguish black [G]eye  

A [G]gold watch she took from his pocket
and placed it right [C]in to my [D7]hand   
And the [G]very first thing that I [Em]knew was
I'd [Am]landed in [D7]Van Diemens [G]Land

Her [G]eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the [C]queen of the [D7]land   
And her [G]hair it hung over her [Em]shoulder
Tied [Am]up with a [D7]black velvet [G]band

Be[G]fore the judge and the jury,
next morning I [C]had to [D7]appear
The [G]judge he says to [Em]me: "Young man,
your [Am]case it is [D7]proven [G]clear"

We'll [G]give you seven years penal [C]servi[G]tude,
to be spent fara[C]way from the [D7]land   
Far [G]away from your friends and [Em]relations,
be[Am]trayed by the [D7]black velvet [G]band"

Her [G]eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the [C]queen of the [D7]land   
And her [G]hair it hung over her [Em]shoulder
Tied [Am]up with a [D7]black velvet [G]band

So [G]come all you jolly young fellows
a warning [C]take by [D7]me   
[G]When you are out on the [Em]town me lads,
be[Am]ware of them [D7]pretty coll[G]eens

For they [G]feed you with strong [C]drink, "Oh [G]yeah",
'til you are un[C]able to [D7]stand
And the [G]very next thing that you'll [Em]know is
you've [Am]landed in [D7]Van Diemens [G]Land

Her [G]eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the [C]queen of the [D7]land   
And her [G]hair it hung over her [Em]shoulder
Tied [Am]up with a [D7]black velvet [G]band

Well, in a neat little town they call Belfast,
apprentice to trade I was bound
and many an hours sweet happiness,
have I spent in that neat little town

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,
meaning not long for to stay
When who should I meet but this pretty fair maid
comes a tripping along the highway

She was both fair and handsome,
her neck it was just like a swans
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

I took a stroll with this pretty fair maid,
and a gentleman passing 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 in to my hand
And the very first thing that I knew was
I'd landed in Van Diemens Land

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

Before the judge and the jury,
next morning I had to appear
The judge he says to me: "Young man,
your case it is proven clear"

We'll give you seven years penal servitude,
to be spent faraway 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 shoulder
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 them pretty colleens

For they feed you with strong drink, "Oh yeah",
'til you are unable to stand
And the very next thing that you'll know is
you've landed in Van Diemens Land

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
