Long Black Veil

Click Here for guitar tabs.

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
The people who saw they all agreed
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me
She walks these hills in a long black veil
Visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me
The judge said, "son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere's else, then you won't have to die"
I said not a word, though it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife
The scaffold is high and eternity near
She stands in the crowd and she sheds not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones
