Long Black Veil.
Rosanne Cash & Jeff Tweedy.
Album: The List.
Capo 3.

Intro: G G6 (play throughout on G)

G
Ten years ago, on a cold dark night,
D                   C                   G6
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light,
      G
There were few at the scene, but they all agree,
Em7      D                       C        G6
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.

    G
The judge said: Son, what is your alibi?
   D                                 C             G
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die,
G
I spoke not a word, though it meant my life,
        D                           C        G6
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife.

    C           G          C          G
She walks these hills in a long black veil,
    C         G              C           G6
She visits my grave when the night winds wail,
G             C      Em  Gmaj7
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
C      D         G  G6
Nobody knows but me.

        Bb
The scaffold is high, and eternity's near,
    F                      Eb         Eb
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear,
Eb
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans,
     F                    Eb            Bb
In a long black veil, she cries over my bones.

    C           G          C          G
She walks these hills in a long black veil,
    C         G              C           G6
She visits my grave when the night winds wail,
G             C      Em  Bm G
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
C      D         G  G6
Nobody knows but me,
G      Em     C      Em  Bm C
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
G      D     G   G6
Nobody knows but me,
    G
Ooh ooh.
