Long Black Veil  Johnny Cash

The other tabs of this song are wrong. I'm nearly positive it's in G and goes like this:
[G]Ten years ago, on a [C]cold dark night
[D7]Someone was killed, 'neath the t[C]own hall ligh[G]t
There were few at the scene, but they [C]all agreed
That the sl[D7]ayer who ran, looked a l[C]ot like m[G]e
The ju[G]dge said son, what is [C]your alibi
If you were s[D7]omewhere else, then you w[C]on't have to d[G]ie
I spoke not a word, al-tho' it [C]meant my life
For I'd b[D7]een in the arms of my b[C]est friend's w[G]ife
She walks the[C]se hills in[G] a long blac[C]k veil [G]
She vi[C]sits my gr[G]ave when the ni[C]ght winds w[G]ail
Nobody knows, n[C]obody s[G]ees
[C]Nobody kn[D7]ows but m[G]e [C] [G]
The sc[G]affold is high and et[C]ernity's near
She st[D7]ood in the crowd and sh[C]ed not a t[G]ear
But sometimes at night, when the [C]cold wind moans
In a l[D7]ong black veil, she cr[C]ies o'er my bo[G]nes
She wa[C]lks these h[G]ills in a lo[C]ng black ve[G]il
She vi[C]sits my gr[G]ave when the ni[C]ght winds w[G]ail
Nobody knows, n[C]obody s[G]ees
[C]Nobody kn[D7]ows but m[G]e[C] [G]
