Long Black Veil
By Daryle Singletary
Written Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin
CD: That's Why I Sing This Way (2002)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Capo 2

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
  A                         G         D
A man was killed 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene and they all did agree
    A                    G        D     
The man who ran looked a lot like me

Well, 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
I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife

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

Well, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
In a long black veil, lord, she cries all o'er my bones


D             G      D 
Nobody knows, nobody sees
G      A         G  D
Nobody knows but me
