Long Black Veil - Mike Ness

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall light
The people who saw now they all agreed
That the slayer who ran, looked just like me

The judge said Son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewheres 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

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

The scaffold is high, eternity near
She stands in the crowd but shed not a tear
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil, she cries on my bones

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

Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows, nobody knows

I said, nobody knows, nobody, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

Nobody knows
