"Long Black Veil" as written by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin....
Ten years ago on a cold dark night someone was killed neath the town hall light
Just a few at the scene but they all did agreed
That the man who ran looked a lot like me
Well The judge said son what is your alibi

If you were somewhere else well you won't have to die
I spoke not a word though it meant my life
So I had 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 love nobody sees nobody knows but me

The scaffold was high and eternity near she stands in the crowd and shedes not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones
She walks these hills in a long black Viel she visits my grave when the night winds wail nobody knows Love nobody sees nobody knows but me {ac gutair}
