Girl in the blue velvet band

One evening while out on a ramble
The hour was just about nine
I met a young maiden in Frisco
On the corner of Kearny and Pine

On her face there was beauty of nature
Her eyes just seemed to expand
Her hair was so rich and so brilliant
Entwined in a blue velvet band

We stolled down the street together
In my pocket she placed her small hand
She planted the evidence on me
The girl in the blue velvet band

I heard the scream of the siren
And the girl in the blue evlvet band
She left me to face all my trouble
With a diamond that was worth ten grand

They sent me to San Quentin for stealing
God knows I'm an innocent man
The guilty one now she is dying
The girl in the blue velvet band

Last night when bed-time was nearing
I was standing there close to the bars
I fancied I heard a voice calling
Far out in the ocean of stars

I'll be out in a week and I'm leaving
But I'll carry the name of a man
That has spent ten years in prison
For the girl in the blue velvet band

But when I get out I'll endeavor
To live in some other new land
I'll bid farewell to old Frisco
And the girl in the blue velvet band
