Song Lyrics

Ten years ago on a cold dark night
There was someone was killed ‘neath the town hall light
Just a few at the scene, and they all did agree
That the man who ran looked a lot like me

Well the judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere else, well you don’t have to die"
But I spoke not a word, though it meant my life
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
Nobody knows Lord, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me
Well the scaffold’s is high and eternity near
She stands in the crowd and sheds not a tear
But sometimes at night when the cold winds moans
In a long black veil she cries all over my bones

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

Nobody knows but me, yeah
