Long Black Veil chords
Dill / Wilkin (performed by The Band, The Chieftains, Johnny Cash, Joan Baez, The Byrds 
		    Dave Matthews Band etc.)

G
Ten years ago on a cool dark night, 
          D                          C         G
there was someone killed beneath the town hall light
 
There were few at the scene and they all did agree,
         D                    C        G
that the one who ran looked a lot like me

    G
The judge said "Son, what is your alibi? 
            D                   C                 G
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die"

I spoke not a word although it meant my life, 
      D                      C             G
I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife

    C           G          C          G
She walks these hills in a long black veil; 
    C         G               C           G
she visits my grave where the night winds wail
                      C      G 
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees, 
D                C G
nobody knows but me 

    G
The scaffold was high and eternity neared, 
    D                      C          G
she stood in the crowd and shed not a tear 

But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans, 
     D                   C             G
in a long black veil she cries over my bones

    C           G          C          G
She walks these hills in a long black veil; 
    C         G               C           G
she visits my grave where the night winds wail
                      C      G 
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees, 
D                C G
nobody knows but me 

D                C G
nobody knows but me
