Long Black Veil
By The Bastard Sons Of Johnny Cash

Capo 1

10 years ago on a cold dark night
A                            G         D  
Someone was killed neath the town hall lights
There were few at the scene but they all agreed
         A                       G        D 
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

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

The judge said "son what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die"
I spoke not a word though it meant my life
Cause I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife

Now the scaffold is high and eternity’s near
Sshe stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
Ssometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil she cries over my bones
