LONG BLACK VEIL

CAPO I

D
Ten years ago on a cold dark night,
A                             G         D
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall lights

There were few at the scene, but they all agreed,
         A                       G        D
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me


The judge said "Son, what is your alibi?
            A                   G                 D
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die."

I spoke not a word, though it meant my life,
    A                      G             D
I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife


        G           D           G          D
Now she walks these hills, in a long black veil
    G         D              G           D
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
              G      D     G      A         D
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me



The scaffold was high and eternity near,
A                          G          D            
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear

But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans,
     A                    G             D
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones


        G           D           G          D
Now she walks these hills, in a long black veil
    G         D              G           D
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
              G      D     G      A         D
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me
              G      D     G      A         D
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me
