The Blue Velvet Band (3)

The Blue Velvet Band (3)

 If you listen, a story I'll tell you,
 Of a girl who once lived in this land
 A girl who once was my sweetheart
 She was known 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 by the Blue Velvet Band

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

 Five years in 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 dear Mother and Dad
 Like a flash by my bedside was standing
 The form of my Blue Velvet Band

 I started the next day for my darling
 To go back and make her my bride
 But as I reached the old country depot
 They told me my sweetheart had died

 They laid her to rest in the churchyard
 Mid the sweet summer flowers of the land
 On her finger was the ring I had bought her
 On her head was the Blue Velvet Band

 I hope this of use to other people, it seems to be quite a lot like other "The
Blue Velvet Band" Lyrics but I thought it would be
 good to submit it to see if others remember the same lyrics. Perhaps there are
a few lyrics missing.
