Long Black Veil

Johnny Cash

 GC
 Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
 D7CG
 Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
 C
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
 D7CG
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me
 GC
The judge said son, what is your alibi
 D7CG
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
 C
I spoke not a word, al-tho' it meant my life
 D7CG
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

 CGCG
She walks these hills in a long black veil      
 CGCG
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
 CG
Nobody knows, nobody sees
 CD7GCG
 Nobody knows but me     

 GC
The scaffold is high and eternity's near
 D7CG
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
 C
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans
 D7CG
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones
 CGCG
                                    She walks these hills in a long black veil
 CGCG
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
 CG
Nobody knows, nobody sees
 CD7GCG
 Nobody knows but me
