Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Girl In The Blue Velvet Band   Bill Monroe

               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
