long black veil

Hank Williams



 1stVerse
 D
 Ten years ago on a cold dark night,
 AGD
 Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light,
 D
 There were few at the scene,but they all agree
 AGD
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.
 D
 The judge said son what is your alibi,
 AG
If you were some where else then you,
 D
won't have to die.
I spoke not a word although it meant my life,
 AG
 For I had been in the arms of my best friend's,
 D
 wife.
 Cborus
 
 D
 She walks these hills,
 GD
In a long black veil,
 A
She visits my grave,
 GD
when the night winds wails,
 GD
Nobody knows nobody sees,
 GAD
 Noboody knows but me.
 2ndVerse
 
 D
 The scaffold was high and eternity near,
 AGD
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear,
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans,
 AG
 In a long black veil she cries o'er my,
 D
 bones.
(REPEAT CHORUS)

 I think you will find this closer

to the actual song.
Remember you can always change it back?

Hank Williams never did this song. Maybe Hank JR. did. Not Hank Sr.
