Ten years ago on a cold dark night,
Someone was killed 'neath the town hall lights.
There were few at the scene, but they all did agreed,
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like 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,
For I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife.

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

The scaffold is high, and eternity near.
She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear.
But some times at night, when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil, she cries over my bones

[Chorus]
Nobody knows, nobody sees, 
Nobody knows, but me

Oooo
