Long Black Veil Lyrics

(Marijohn Wilkin - Danny Dill)
© '59 Cedarwood Publishing, BMI

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

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
[ harmonica ]
The judge said son what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die
I spoke not a word though it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

Now the scaffold is high and eternity's 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 o'er my bones

She walks these hills...
Nobody knows nobody sees nobody knows but me
