Long Black Veil Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

Well, the judge said, "Son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else, well, you won't have to die"
I spoke not a word though it meant my life
So I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife

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

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

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

DILL, DANNY / WILKIN, MARIJOHN
