THE GIRL IN THE BLUE VELVET BAND Mac Wiseman Bill Monroe One evening while out for a ramble, The hour was just about nine I met a young maiden in 'Frisco, On the corner of Cherry and Pine. On her face there was beauty of nature, And her eyes seem to expand Her hair was so rich and so brilliant, Entwined in a blue velvet band. We strolled down the long street together, In my pocket she placed a small hand She Planted the evidence on me, A diamond that was worth ten grand. Then I heard the wild scream of the sirens, And the girl in the blue velvet band She left me to face all the troubles, With a diamond that was worth ten grand. They sent me to San Quenton for stealin', God knows I'm an innocent man For the guilty one now she lies dyin', That girl in the blue velvet band. Last night while bedtime was ringin', I was standin' close to the bars I fancied I could hear her voice callin', From far out on the ocean of stars. I'll be out in a week then I'm leavin', But I'll carry the name of a man Who spent ten years in this prison, For the girl in the blue velvet band Last night while bedtime was ringin' I was standin' close to the bars I fancied I could hear her voice callin' From far out on the ocean of stars.
