Johnny Cash - Long Black Veil lyrics

[Verse 1] Ten years ago on a cold dark night Someone was k**ed 'neath the town hall light There were few at the scene, but they all agreed That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me [Chorus] 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 [Verse 2] The Judge said, "Son, what is your alibi? If you were somewhere else, you won't 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 seemed high, and eternity was near She stood in the crowd, but she shed not a tear But some times at night when the cold wind calls She comes to my grave and she moans o'er my bones [Chorus] [Outro] Nobody knows, nobody sees Nobody knows but me
