Which is, of course, a filk to "Black Velvet Band".

perform it.

Might anyone know who did it?]

Ioseph, in the "Black Book of Locksley", credits it to Thorsen Danske,
who was a fairly prolific filker in Caid in the 80s.  Whether he still
plays I know not, but you might check with Sir Charles or Master Thoron
(CofDublin at aol.com and thoronr at aol.com ) who keep track of things bardic
in Caid.
