The Long Black Veil lyrics


Song information

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: At Folsom Prison



Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall lights
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

Chorus ~ she walks these hills, in a long black veil
She visits my grave, when the night winds vail
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows, but 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 ment my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife


Now the schaffold is high, and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear
But some times at night, when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil, she cries over my bones

Chorus ~ she walks these hills, in a long black veil
When the cold winds blow, and the night winds wail
No body knows, no body sees
No body knows, but me
