"Long Black Veil" by the Band

[Verse]
E
Ten years ago on a cold dark night
          B                         Am        E
There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light
E
There were few at the scene and they all did agree
         B                    Am       E
That the man who ran looked a lot like me.

E
The judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?
            B                   Am                E
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die."
E
I said not a word though it meant my life,
      B                      Am            E
I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife.

[Chorus]
Am              E     Am              E
She walks these hills in a long black veil.
Am              E   Am                   E
She visits my grave when the night winds wail.
E                     Am     E     E      B         Am
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees; nobody knows but me.

[Verse]
E
The scaffold was high and eternity near
    B                      Am         E
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
E
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
     B                   Am            E
In a long black veil she cries over my bones.

[Chorus]
Am              E     Am              E
She walks these hills in a long black veil.
Am              E   Am                   E
She visits my grave when the night winds wail.
E                     Am     E     E      B         Am
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees; nobody knows but me.

this tab is right if you replace the e's with G's, the Am's with C's (not C minor), and the B's with D's.

He admits at the top that it's not the the same key as the record, he's transposed to suit his vocal range.
