G
Ten years ago on a cool dark night
D C G
There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light
G
There were few at the scene and they all did agree
D C G
That the man who ran looked a lot like 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 although it meant my life
I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife

C G C G
She walks these hills in a long black veil
C G C G
She visits my grave where the night winds wail
G C G
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees
C G D C
Nobody knows but me

The scaffold was high and eternity neared
She stood in the crowd and she'd not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil she cries over my bones
