Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Long black veil  Misc. Traditional

[G]Ten years ago on a cold dark night
There was s[D]omeone [D7]shot 'neath the [C]town hall [G]light
F[G]ew were at the scene but they all agree
That the [D]man did the s[D7]hooting looked a [C]lot like [G]me
The judge said "Son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else 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 friends wife
She walk[C]s these [G]hills in a l[C]ong bl[D7]ack ve[G]il
She visi[C]ts my [G]grave while the [C]night [D7]winds wa[G]il
Nobody [B7]knows, [C]nobody [G]sees,
[A7]Nobody k[D7]nows but [G]me
The scaffold was high, and eternity near
She stood in the crowd, but she shed not a tear
But sometimes late at night, when the cold wind moans
She visits my grave, and she cries o'er my bones
