Long Black Veil
by Wilkins and Dill
as played by The Country Gentlemen

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
            (D)                           {C}   (G)
there was someone killed 'neath the town hall light

There were few at the scene but they all agreed
           (D)                    {C}      (G)
that the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me

The judge said son what is your alibi
if you were somewhere else than you don't have to die.
I spoke not a word, though it meant my life
for I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife

     {C}       (G)        {C}        (G)
She walks the hills in a long black veil
     {C}       (G)            {C}        (G)
she visits my grave when the night winds wail
                {C}   (G)
nobody knows, nobody sees
{C}     (D)      (G)
nobody knows but me.

The scaffold was high and eternity near
she stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
in a long black veil, she cries over my bones.
