Long Black Veil  Johnny Cash

CAPO 1
[A]Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
E7 x D A
Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
E7 x D A
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me
She walk[D]s these hil[A]ls in a [D]long black[A] veil
She visi[D]ts my grav[A]e when the[D] night wind[A]s wail
Nobody kno[D]ws, nobody s[A]ees
D E7 x A
Nobody knows but me
T[A]he judge said son, what is your alibi
E7 x D A
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
I spoke not a word, al-tho' it meant my life
E7 x D A
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife
T[A]he scaffold is high and eternity's near
E7 x D A
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans
E7 x D A
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones
She walk[D]s these hil[A]ls in a [D]long black[A] veil
She vis[D]its my gra[A]ve when th[D]e night win[A]ds wail
Nobody kn[D]ows, nobody[A] sees
D E7 x A
Nobody knows but me
