D 
Ten years ago - on a cool dark night, 
          A                            G         D 
there was someone killed - beneath the town hall light 
           D 
There were few at the scene - and they all did agree, 
         A                      G        D 
that the one who ran - looked a lot like me 
    D 
The judge said Son, - what is your alibi 
       A                              G             D 
If you were somewhere else - then you won't have to die 
  D 
I spoke not a word - though it meant my life, 
      A                        G             D 
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 
she visits my grave where the night winds wail 
                      G      D 
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees 
A                G  D 
nobody knows but me 
    D 
The scaffold was high - and eternity neared 
    A                        G          D 
she stood in the crowd - and shed not a tear 
    D 
But sometimes at night - when the cold wind moans 
     A                     G             D 
in a long black veil - she cries over my bones 
 
    G           D          G          D 
She walks these hills in a long black veil 
    G         D               G           D 
she visits my grave where the night winds wail 
                      G      D 
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees 
A                G  D 
nobody knows but me 
A                G  D 
nobody knows but me
