    G
    Ten years ago on a cold dark night 
    DD7CG
    There was someone shot 'neath the town hall light 
    G
    Few were at the scene but they all agree 
    DD7CG
    That the man did the shooting looked a lot like me 
    The judge said "Son, what is your alibi
    If you were somewhere else you won't have to die"
    I spoke not a word, though it meant my life
    For I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife
    CGCD7G
    She walks these hills in a long black veil 
    CGCD7G
    She visits my grave while the night winds wail 
    B7CG
    Nobody knows, nobody sees, 
    A7D7G
    Nobody knows but me 
    --------------------
    The scaffold was high, and eternity near
    She stood in the crowd, but she shed not a tear
    But sometimes late at night, when the cold wind moans
    She visits my grave, and she cries o'er my bones
    (Chorus)
