Blue Velvet Band Misc. Country and Western
BLUE VELVET BAND I will tell you a sad but true story Let it be an example to man How I tore down the world of my sweetheart She was known as the Blue Velvet Band On her cheeks were the first rays of beauty Her beauty it seemed to expand Her hair hung down in long tresses Tied back by a Blue Velvet Band I Boarded a tanker for Holland And accused her of loving some man But deep down in my heart she kept calling Come back to your Blue Velvet Band As the sea gulls flew high up above us In the path of the silvery moonlight I see your face in wave dear Out in the ocean tonight I was called to the bridge by the Captain In his hand was a message of white The message just flashed o're the wireless That your darling is dying tonight I boarded a freighter for Cuba To speed me back to her side But the bells in the old village steeple Had told me my darling had died Heart broken I knelt down and kissed her The last time to hold her sweet hand Which wore the ring that I bought her
