I found only one reference to the Black Velvet song here among the threads. I am wondering if y'all have heard any US versions of the same story. I heard a JC Crow version set, I think, in San Fransisco, where a young man is made the scape goat of the pretty and enterprising young woman, and sent to jail for her crime. In this version, the young woman meets her just deserts when she dies just as the young man is about to complete his prison sentence.
Anyone know about how these version may be connected? Are there other versions in between?
