Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews Long Black Veil Lyrics

Last updated: 08/15/2010 11:00:00 AM

Original Lyrics and Music by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin

Ten years ago, on a cold, dark night
Someone was killed beneath the town hall light
There were few at the scene
But they all agreed
That the slayer who ran
Looked a lot like me

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 judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere else,
Then you won't have to die."
Well, I said not a word
Alhough it meant my life
For I had been in the arms
Of my best friend's wife

Now 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

Oh now, the scaffold was high
And eternity was near;
She stood in the crowd
And shed not a tear

But sometimes at night when the cold winds blow ****in a long black veil
she cries over my bones******


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

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
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me

Nobody knows but me...

Nobody knows...
Nobody knows...
Nobody knows... but me.
