Long Black Veil  Band



The Band does it in G but C is nice too


[E]Ten years ago on a cold dark night
There was [B]someone killed 'neath the [A]town hall [E]light
[E]There were few at the scene and they all did agree
That the [B]man who ran looked a [A]lot like [E]me.
[E]The judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?
If you were [B]somewhere else then [A]you won't have to [E]die."
[E]I said not a word though it meant my life,
I had [B]been in the arms of my [A]best friend's [E]wife.
[A]She walks these [E]hills [A]in a long black [E]veil.
[A]She visits my gr[E]ave [A]when the night winds [E]wail.
[E]Nobody knows, no, and [A]nobody [E]sees; [E]nobody [B]knows but [A]me.
[E]The scaffold was high and eternity near
She [B]stood in the crowd and [A]shed not a [E]tear
[E]But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a [B]long black veil she [A]cries over my [E]bones.
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave where the night winds wail.

Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees; nobody knows but me.

I learned it in G, so the chords would run G....D....C [NOT a Cm, straight C chord)...G

Turns out like this:
