Roy Drusky – Long Black Veil lyrics

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
[ ac.guitar ]
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}
