The Long Black Veil
By Lefty Frizzell

G 
Ten years ago on a cold dark night 
  D                         C         G                  
A man was killed ‘neath the town hall light 
G
There were few at the scene, but they all did agree 
         D                  C         G
That the man who ran looked alot like me 

The judge said son what is your alibi 
If you were somewhere else then you won’t have to die 
I spoke not a word though it meant my life
For I’d been in the arms of my best friend’s wife 

Chorus
    C           G          C          G
She walks these hills in a long black veil 
    C         G              C           G
And visits my grave when the night winds wail 
              C      G 
Nobody knows, nobody sees
C      D         G
Nobody knows but me  
 
The scaffold was high and eternity near 
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear 
But sometimes at night when the cold wind blows 
In a long black veil she cries over my bones 
 
She walks these hills 
In a long black veil 
She visits my grave 
When the night winds wail 
Nobody knows, nobody sees,  
nobody knows but me
