Kingston Trio – Long Black Veil chords

Rick in Macon

CTen years ago on a cold dark night
G7 F C Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
CJust a few at the scene, and they all did agree
G7 F C That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me
CThe judge said "Son, what is your alibi?
G7 F CIf you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die"
CI 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
F C F CShe walks these hills in a long black veil
F C F CShe visits my grave when the night winds wail
C C7 F CNobody knows, nobody sees
F G7 CNobody knows, but me
CThe scaffold was high, and eternity near
G7 F C She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear
CBut sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
G7 F CIn a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones
