#6 in 1959. (A crossover hit.)

#1.

B A Ethere was someone killed 'neath the town hall light.
EThere were few were at the scene, but they all agreed,
B A Ethat the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.
#2.
EThe judge said, 'Son, what is your alibi?
B A EIf you were somewhere else then you won't have to die.'

B A Ein a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones.
