LONG BLACK VEIL (chromatic)
By Marijon Wilkins & Danny Hill
Johnny Cash, Joan Baez
Key: Eb

-5*  -5* -5*-5*-3*
Ten years  a-go 
-5*-6 7     7  -6-5*
on a cold dark night,
-6   -6   7   -6      -3*  -3* -5*  -5*-6  -5*
Some-one was killed ‘neath the Town Hall light
-5* -5* -5* -5*-5*-3*-5*-6 7  7 -6-5*
The peo-ple who saw  they all a-greed
-5   -5*  -6  -6  7  -6
That the slay-er who ran 
-3*   -3*-5* -5*-6-5*
looked a lot like me.

-5*  -5*   -5* -5*-3*  -5* -6  7   7 -6-5*  
The judge said, “son, what is your al-i-bi?
-6 -6    7    -6  -5*   -5*
If you were some-wheres else, 
-6   -5*  -5*   5   5  -5*
then you won't have to die”.

-5* -5* -5*-5*-5*-3* -5*   -6   7    7  -67
I spoke not a word, though it meant my life,
-5  -5*  -6  -6  7   -6
For I'd been in the arms 
-3* 5  -5*  -5*    -6-5*
of my best friend's wife.

-3*5 -5*   -5*  5-3*  
She walks these hills 
-3*5 -5*   -5* 7-67-6-5*
in a long black  veil,
5   -5*-5* 5 -3* -3*   5
Vis-its my grave when the 
-5*   -6-5* 7-67-6-5* 
night winds  wail,
7-7*-7* 8 -7*7  -5* -5*-5*7-6-5*
No- bod-y knows, no-bod-y sees,
5-5*-5*-5* -6     7 7-6-5*
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.
