Long Black Veil Lyrics Johnny Cash


Johnny Cash - Long Black Veil Songtext

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

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil, she cries ov're my bones

(I hear somebody applauding)


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, thou it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife
