Lyrics

Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
There was someone killed 'neath the townhall light
There were few at the scene, but the all agreed
That the stranger who fled looked a lot like me

Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody 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
For 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 where the night winds wail

Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me

The scaffold was high, and eternity near
She stood in the crown and shed not a tear
But sometimes at night, when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil, she cries on my bones

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave where the night winds wail

Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me
