The Long Black Veil

Johnny Cash

Ten years ago on a cold dark night,
Someone was killed beneath the town hall lights.
There were few at the scene but they all agreed,
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.

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.

The judge said son, what is your aliby,
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die.
I spoke not a word, though it ment my life,
I've been in the arms, of my best friends wife.

Now the schaffold see high, and eternity was near.
She stood in the crowd, and shared not a tear.
But sometimes at nights when the cold wind calls
She comes to my grave and she moans on 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.
