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
