Her eyes, they shone like the diamonds.
And her hair hung over her shoulders,

And many an hour of sweet happiness I spent in that neat little town.
Far away from my friends and relations. They follow the black velvet band.
Her eyes, they shone like the diamonds.
And her hair hung over her shoulders,

When I met with a frolicksome damsel. She was selling her trade in the bar.
Then the law came and put me in prison.

You'd think she was queen of the land,
Tied up with a black velvet band.
Next morning, before judge and jury, for trial I had to appear.
And seven long years is your sentence. You're going to Van Diemen's Land,

You'd think she was queen of the land,
Tied up with a black velvet band.
Now, come all ye jolly young fellows, I'll have you take warning by me.
For they'll fill you with whiskey and porter, til you are not able to stand.
Land.
Her eyes, they shone like the diamonds.
And her hair hung over her shoulders,
