Long Black Veil
The Long Black Veil by Johnny Cash Bb F Bb Ten years ago on a cold dark night, someone was killed in the town of lights. F Few were at the scene, but they all agreed that the slayer who ran looked a Bb F Bb F lot like me. She walks these hills in a long black veil. She visits my grave Bb F Bb 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 dont have to die. I spoke not a word though it meant my life. 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. Sometimes at night when the cold wind blows, in a long black 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.
