Johnny Cash


The Long Black Veil (3:05) Written by: M.Wilkin and D.Dill Recorded: December 17, 1964 Nashville, Tennessee Source: The Essential Johnny Cash Vol. 2 Key: C F-C-F-C (C) Ten years ago on a cold dark night (G) Someone was killed 'neath the town (F) hall lights (C) (C) There were few at the scene but they all agreed (C) That the (G) slayer who ran looked a lot (F) like me (C)
She (F) walks these hills (C) in a (F) long black veil (C) She (F) visits my grave (C) when the (F) night winds wail (C) Nobody knows (F) nobody sees (C) (F) Nobody (G) knows but me (C) 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 Now the scaffold is high and eternity's near She stood in a crowd and shed not a tear But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans In a long black veil she cries o're 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 Nobody knows nobody sees Nobody knows but me
