Mike Ness – Long Black Veil lyrics
Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
There was someone killed, 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but 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 selse
Then you wont have to die
I spoke not a word, though it meant my life
For I been in the arms, of my best friend's wife

She walks these hills
In her long black veil
She visits my grave
When the cold winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows, but me

The sky has turned dark, and eternity's near
She stands in the crowd, she sheds not a tear
Late at night, when the cold winds moan
In her long black veil
She cries o'r my bones

Repeat Chorus
