Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Black Velvet Band lyrics (variations)
The version which I sing is set in the Wapping/Ratcliffe area of East London. It's fairly similiar to the Irish versions and uses the same tune for the first part of the verse and for the chorus. the second part of the verse uses a different tune, which to my mind makes the song much more interesting.
