Lyrics:

Ten years ago on a cool, dark night
There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene but they all did agree
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like 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 although it meant my life
For I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
[ Long Black Veil lyrics found on http://lyrics.my ]
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

The scaffold is high and eternity is neared
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil she cries over my bones

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