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

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

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


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