LONG BLACK VEIL

Johnny Cash, Joan Baez
Key: Eb

Ten years a-go on a cold dark night,
-8   -8   8   -8      6     6   7    7  -8 7
Some one was killed ‘neath the Town Hall light
7    7   7   7  7 6  7-8  8  8  -8 7
The peo-ple who saw they all a-greed
-7    7   -8  -8  8  -8
That the slay-er who ran 
6      6  7  7 -8 7
looked a lot like me.

7     7    7     7 6   7   -8  8   8 -8 7
The judge said, “son, what is your al-i-bi?
-8 -8   8    -8    7      7
If you were some-wheres else, 
-8    7    7    -6  -6  6
then you won't have to die”.
7   7    7  7  76     7    -8   8   8  -8 8
I spoke not a word, though it meant my life,
6    7   -8  -8  8   -8
For I'd been in the arms 
6  -6  7      7     -8 7
of my best friend's wife.

6-6   7     7    7 6  6 -6  7     7  8-88-87
She walks these hills in a long black veil,
-6   7  7   -6 6  6   -6    7    -87 8-88-87
Vis-its my grave when the night winds wail,
89  9 -10 9 8   7   7  7 8-87  
No-bod-y knows, no-bod-y sees,
6   7  7  -8     8 8-87
No-bod-y knows, but me.

The scaffold is high, eternity near,
She stands in the crowd, she sheds not a tear,
But sometimes at night, when the cold winds moan,
In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones.

She walks these hills in a long black veil,
Visits my grave when the night winds wail,
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
Nobody knows, but me.
