Long Black Veil Chords

Rick in Macon

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
G7                            F         C  
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
Just a few at the scene, and they all did agree
         G7                       F       C  
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me
The judge said "Son, what is your alibi?
            G7                       F              C
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die"
I spoke not a word, although it meant my life
        G7                     F             C 
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife
[ Tab from: ]
     F          C          F          C
She walks these hills in a long black veil
    F          C             F           C
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
C       C7     F      C
Nobody knows, nobody sees
F       G7         C
Nobody knows, but me

The scaffold was high, and eternity near
    G7                      F           C         
She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
      G7                   F            C
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones
