E Ten years ago, on a cold, dark night,
B7 A ESomebody was killed, 'neath the town hall lights.
EThere were few at the scene, but they all agreed,
B7 A EThat the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me.
A E A EShe walks these hills, in a long black veil,
A E A EShe visits my grave, when the night winds wail.
A ENobody knows, nobody sees,
B7 ENobody knows but me.
The judge said "Son, what is your alibi?", "If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die". And I spoke not a word, though it meant my life, I'd been in the arms, of my best friend's wife. She walks these hills, in a long black veil, She visits my grave, when the night winds wail. Nobody knows, nobody sees, Nobody knows but me. Now the scaffold is high, and eternity's near, She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear. But sometimes at night, when a cold wind moans, In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones. She walks these hills, in a long black veil, She visits my grave, when the night winds wail. Nobody knows, nobody sees, Nobody knows but me.
