Blue Velvet Band
Written and Recorded by Hank Snow
3/4 time 
C 
If you listen a story I'll  
F 
tell 
 
you
 
Of a  
C 
girl who once lived in this  
G7 
world
 
A  
C 
girl who once was my  
F 
sweetheart
 
She was  
C 
known as the  
G7 
Blue Velvet  
C 
Band
 
On her cheeks was the first flash of  
F 
nature
 
Her  
C 
beauty it seemed to  
G7 
expand
 
Her  
C 
hair hung down in long  
F 
tresses
 
Tied  
C 
back with a  
G7 
blue velvet  
C 
band
 
I can still see those tears as we  
F 
parted
 
Of  
C 
my heart broken blue velvet  
G7 
band
 
As  
C 
I left her I told her I'd  
F 
never
 
Come  
C 
back to my  
G7 
old home  
C 
again
 
Five years in the wide open  
F 
spaces
 
Was  
C 
all that my poor heart could  
G7 
stand
 
Every  
C 
night as I lay on my  
F 
pillow
 
I would  
C 
dream of my  
G7 
Blue Velvet  
C 
Band
 
Then one night as I lay down  
F 
thinking
 
Of  
C 
home and poor mother and  
G7 
dad
 
Like  
C 
a flash by my bedside was  
F 
standing
 
The  
C 
form of my  
G7 
Blue Velvet  
C 
Band
 
I started next day for my  
F 
darling
 
To  
C 
go back and make her my  
G7 
bride
 
But  
C 
as I reached the old country  
F 
depot
 
They  
C 
told me my  
G7 
sweetheart had  
C 
died
 
They laid her to rest in the  
F 
churchyard
 
Midst  
C 
the sweet summer flowers of the  
G7 
land
 
On  
C 
her finger was the ring I had  
F 
bought 
 
her
 
On her  
C 
head was a  
G7 
blue velvet  
C 
band
