The Long Black Veil Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: At Folsom Prison

Ten years ago on a cold dark night,
there was someone killed beneath the town hall lights.
There were people at the scene and they all agreed,
that the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.
Chorous ~ She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
When the cold winds blow, and the night winds wail.
Nobody knows, no body 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,
cause I was in the arms, of my best friends wife.
Chorous ~ She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
When the cold winds blow, and the night winds wail.
No body knows, no body sees.
No body knows, but me.
The schaffold was high, and eternity near.
She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear.
But some dark nights, when the cold winds wail.
She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
Chorous ~ She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
When the cold winds blow, and the night winds wail.
No body knows, nobody sees.
Nobody knows, but me.
Fades out with repetitive ~ Nobody knows, but me....
