faithfull marianne – long black veil lyrics

ten years ago on a cold dark night,
there was someone killed ‘neath the town hall light.
there were few at the scene but they all did agree
that the man who ran looked a lot like me.

she walks these hills in a long black veil.
she visits my grave where the night winds wail.
n-body knows, no, and n-body sees,
n-body knows but me.

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, though it meant my life,
i had been in the arms of my best friend’s wife.

she walks these hills in a long black veil.
she visits my grave where the night winds wail.
n-body knows, no, and n-body sees,
n-body knows but me.

the scaffold is high and eternity nears
she stood in the crowd and shed not a tear.
but sometimes at night where the cold winds moan
in a long black veil she cries all o’er my bones.

she walks these hills in a long black veil.
she visits my grave when the night winds wail.
n-body knows, no, and n-body sees,
n-body knows but me.

n-body knows but me.
