 C                              
Ten years ago, on a cold, dark night,
     G7                           F         C
Somebody was killed, 'neath the town hall lights.
            C
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed,
           G7                      F        C
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me.

      F           C           F         C
She walks these hills, in a long black veil,
      F         C               F          C
She visits my grave, when the night winds wail.
         F             C
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
 G7               C
Nobody knows but me.

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

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

Now the scaffold is high, and eternity's near,
She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear.
But sometimes at night, when a cold wind moans,
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones.

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