Stewie Mudcat Australia/NZ Songbook (1009* d) RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia 16 Nov 20


BLACK VELVET BAND
(Anon)

It was the time for leaving
An emigrant I was bound
To say farewell to my true love
And dear old London town

Chorus:
Her eyes they shine like diamonds
I took hold of her hand
Her hair hung down her shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band

I knew not when I壇 see her
When I bade her adieu
For I was bound for New Zealand
To see my contract through

I知 saving every penny
And silver to be found
I値l latch on to every sovereign
That reaches Auckland town

And when I知 rich and proper
And own a store in town
I値l send back home for my true love
And then I値l settle down
