Ten years ago, on a cold dark night, there was
D      |                 |C        |G     |           |
someone killed 'neath the Town Hall light.  There were
          |               |      |              |
few at the scene, but they all agreed  that the
D      |            |C       |G          |
man who ran looked a lot like me.  She
C          |G        |C         |G   |      |
walks these hill in a long black veil.  She
C        |G              |C          |G    |     |
visits my grave while the night winds wail.
      |      |C     |        |
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
C     |D        |G       |
Nobody knows but me.
The judge said: Son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else, then you don't have to die.
I spoke not a word though it ment my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife.
The scaffold was high and eternity was near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear.
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan
In a long black veil she cries over my bones.
