G
Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
D7                              C            G
Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
           D7                      C        G 
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me
      G                            
The judge said son, what is your alibi
             D7                       C             G 
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
I spoke not a word, al-tho' it meant my life
         D7                     C             G
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

CHORUS:

      C          G           C          G 
She walks these hills in a long black veil
      C         G              C          G
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
               C      G
Nobody knows, nobody sees
C        D7       G  C G 
Nobody knows but me


VERSE 3:
      G         
The scaffold is high and eternity's near
      D7                     C         G
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans
      D7                    C             G
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones

CHORUS:

      C          G           C          G 
She walks these hills in a long black veil
      C         G              C          G
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
               C      G
Nobody knows, nobody sees
C        D7       G  C G 
Nobody knows but me
