The Long Black Veil (Letra)
Compositor: inserir

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
Just a few at the scene and they all did agree
That the man who ran looked a lot like me
The judge said Son what's your alibi
If you were somewheres else then you won't have to die
But I spoke not a word tho' it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

She walks these hills in a long black veil
Visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows nobody sees
Nobody knows but me
The scaffold is high eternity near
She stands in the crowd she sheds not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
Just a few at the scene and they all did agree
That the man who ran looked a lot like me

The judge said Son what's your alibi
If you were somewheres else then you won't have to die
But I spoke not a word tho' it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

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

The scaffold is high eternity near
She stands in the crowd she sheds not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones
