The Long Black Veil by Lefty Frizzell written by Wilkin/Dill Transcribed by Jason and Jennifer Hannan Capo 2
Intro: ÊD
[D]Ten years ago on a cold dark night
There was [A]someone killed ‘neath the [G]town hall [D]light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the [A]slayer who ran looked a [G]lot like [D]me
The judge said son what is your alibi
If you were [A]somewhere else then [G]you won’t have to [D]die
I spoke not a word though it meant my life
For I had [A]been in the arms of my [G]best friend’s [D]wife
She [G]walks these [D]hills
In a [G]long black [D]veil
She [G]visits my [D]grave
When the [G]night winds [D]wail
Nobody knows, [G]nobody [D]sees,
[G]nobody [A]knows but [D]me
The [D]scaffold’s high and eternity near
She [A]stood in the crowd and [G]shed not a [D]tear
But [D]sometimes at night when the cold wind blows
In a [A]long black veil she [G]cries o’er my [D]bones
She [G]walks these [D]hills
In a [G]long black [D]veil
She [G]visits my [D]grave
When the [G]night winds [D]wail
Nobody knows, [G]nobody [D]sees,
[G]nobody [A]knows but [D]me
[G]Nobody [A]knows but [D]me
[G]Nobody [A]knows but [D]me
