Long Black Veil (Ness Mike)

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 else, then you won't 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 over my bones 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
