    Lyrics

    If you listen a story I'll tell you,
    Of a girl who once lived in this land
    A girl who was once my sweetheart,
    She was know as The Blue Velvet Band.

    On her cheeks was the first flush of nature,
    Her beauty, it seemed to expand,
    Her hair hung down in long tresses,
    Tied back with a blue velvet band.

    I can still see those tears as we parted,
    Of my heart broken Blue Velvet Band
    As I left I told her I'd never
    Come back to my old home again.

    Five years on the wide open spaces
    Was all that my poor heart could stand,
    Every night as I lay on my pillow,
    I would dream of my Blue Velvet Band.

    Then one night as I lay down dreaming
    Of home and poor mother and dad,
    Like a flash by my bedside was standing
    The form of my Blue Velvet Band.

    I started next day for my darling,
    Just to go back and make her my bride
    But as I reached the old country depot,
    They told my my sweet heart has died.

    They laid her to rest in the churchyard,
    Midst the sweet summer flowers of the land
    On her finger the ring I had bought her,
    On her head was a blue velvet band.
