Long Black Veil by Joan Baez


Ten years ago on a cold dark night

Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light

The people who saw they all agreed

That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

 

The judge said "son what is your alibi?

If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die"

I spoke not a word though it meant my life

For i'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

She walks these hills in a long black veil

Visits my grave when the night winds wail

Nobody knows nobody sees nobody knows but me

 

The scaffold is high eternity near

She stands in the crowd she sheds not a tear

But sometimes at night when the cold winds moan

In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones

 

She walks these hills in a long black veil

Visits my grave when the night winds wail

Nobody knows nobody sees nobody knows but me
