Long Black Veil:Lefty Frizzell.
#6 in 1959. (A crossover hit.)

#1.
E
Ten years ago, on a cold dark night,
          B                         A         E
there was someone killed 'neath the town hall light.
E
There were few were at the scene, but they all agreed,
         B                       A        E
that the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.

#2.
E
The judge said, 'Son, what is your alibi?
            B                       A             E
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die.'
E
I spoke not a word though it meant my life,
          B                      A             E
for I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife.

CHORUS:
    A           E           A          E
She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
    A         E               A           E
She visits my grave, when the night winds wail.
E             A      E     A      B          E
Nobody knows, nobody sees..nobody knows, but me.

#3.
E
The scaffold is high, and eternity nears..
    B                      A          E
she stood in the crowd and shed not a tear.
E
But sometimes at night when the cold wind blows,
     B                    A             E
in a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones.

CHORUS:
    A           E           A          E
She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
    A         E               A           E
She visits my grave, when the night winds wail.
E             A      E     A      B          E
Nobody knows, nobody sees..nobody knows, but me.

OUTRO:
A      B         E    A      B         E
Nobody knows but me...nobody knows but me. (Fade.)


A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
