Ten years ago, on a cold dark night 
E                   D                   A 
A man was killed, beneath the town hall light 
Though there were few, present at the scene 
     E                     D                A 
They say the man who fled, looked alot like me 
D A D A And she walks these hills, in a long black veil D A D A She visits my grave, when the night winds wail D A D A Nobody knows, nobody sees D E A D E A Nobody knows but me
The judge said son, what's your alibi If you were somewhere else, then you would not have to die But I did not say a word, though it meant my life For I was in the arms of my best friends wife (Chorus) The scaffold is high and eternity is near She was in the crowd, she shed not a tear Oh sometimes late at night, when the cold wind blows The long black veil it rests over my bones (Chorus) D A D A Nobody knows, nobody sees D E A Nobody knows
