Lefty Frizzell – Long Black Veil Lyrics

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
There was someone killed ‘neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all 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 though 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
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me.

The scaffold’s high and eternity near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind blows
In a long black veil she cries o’er 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.
Nobody knows but me…
