Long Black Veil

Höfundur lags: Marijohn Wilkin Höfundur texta: Danny Dill Flytjandi: Johnny Cash Sent inn af: Anonymous
[G]Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
[D]Someone was killed 'neath the [C]town hall [G]light
[G]There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the [D]man who ran looked a [C]lot like [G]me  

She [C]walks these [G]hills
in a [C]long black [G]veil
She [C]visits my [G]grave
while the [C]night winds [G]wail
[C]Nobody [G]knows, [C]nobody [G]sees,
[C]nobody [G]knows [D]but [G]me  

The [G]judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?
If you were [D]somewhere else,
then [C]you don't have to d[G]ie."
[G]I spoke not a word though it meant my life
For I'd been [D]in the arms of my [C]best friends [G]wife

[G]The scaffold was high and eternity was near
She [D]stood in the crowd and [C]shed not a [G]tear
[G]But sometimes at night when the cold winds calls
In a [D]long black veil she [C]moans over my [G]bones

She [C]walks these [G]hills
in a [C]long black [G]veil
She [C]visits my [G]grave
while the [C]night winds [G]wail
[C]Nobody [G]knows, [C]nobody [G]sees,
[C]nobody [G]knows [D]but [G]me  

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 man who ran looked a lot like me

She walks these hills
in a long black veil
She visits my grave
while 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 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

The scaffold was high and eternity was near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds calls
In a long black veil she moans over my bones

She walks these hills
in a long black veil
She visits my grave
while the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
nobody knows but me
