Black Veil recorded by Johnny Cash written by Marijohn Wilkin and Danny Dill
years ago on a cold dark night
was killed beneath the town hall light There
were few at the scene but they all agreed
the slayer who ran looked a lot like me
walks these hills
C In a
long black veil
visits my grave
the night winds wail
F C Nobody
knows nobody sees F
knows but me The
judge said son what is your alibi
C If you
were somewhere else then you won't have to die I
spoke not a word though it meant my life
C For I
had been in the arms of my best friend's wife Repeat
scaffold's high and eternity near
stood in the crowd and shed not a tear But
sometimes at night when the cold wind blows
C In a
long black veil she cries over my bones repeat
