I'm pretty sure that this isn't in the same key as the one on the record, but it's easier for me to sing along with this key for some reason. I think this is a folk song; it was written by Marijohn Wilkin and Danny Dill. An Irish band called the Cheftains do a really great version of this same song with Mick Jagger doing the lead vocals.

"Long Black Veil" by the Band

E
Ten years ago on a cold dark night

          B                         Am        E
There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light

E
There were few at the scene and they all did agree

	 B                    Am       E
That the man who ran looked a lot like me.

E
The judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?

	    B                   Am                E
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die."

E
I said not a word though it meant my life,

      B                      Am            E
I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife.


Am              E     Am              E
She walks these hills in a long black veil.

Am              E   Am                   E
She visits my grave when the night winds wail.


E                     Am     E     E      B         Am
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees; nobody knows but me.


E
The scaffold was high and eternity near

    B 			   Am	      E
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear

E
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans

     B                   Am            E
In a long black veil she cries over my bones.

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave where the night winds wail.

Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees; nobody knows but me.
