LONG BLACK VEIL

by Chris LeDoux

CAPO I

D

Ten years ago on a cold dark night,

A G D

Someone was killed 'neath the town hall lights

There were few at the scene, but they all agreed,

A G D

That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

The judge said "Son, what is your alibi?

A G D

If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die."

I spoke not a word, though it meant my life,

A G D

I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

G D G D

Now she walks these hills, in a long black veil

G D G D

She visits my grave when the night winds wail

G D G A D

Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me

The scaffold was high and eternity near,

A G D

She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear

But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans,

A G D

In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones

G D G D

Now she walks these hills, in a long black veil

G D G D

She visits my grave when the night winds wail

G D G A D

Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me

G D G A D

Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me
