Long Black Veil Lyrics

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed beneath 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

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

Oh, 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

Oh, now the scaffold is high, eternity is near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
Oh, sometimes at night when the cold winds blow
In a long black veil she cries over 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

Oh, 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

Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me
Nobody knows but me
Nobody knows but me

Nobody knows
Nobody knows but me
Nobody knows but me
Nobody but me

Nobody knows but me
Nobody, nobody
Nobody knows
Nobody knows

Nobody, nobody
