Long Black Veil.

A sad country song. All the better. I heard it first from a Johnny Cash record. The Band did it on their first album in 1969, the Big Pink album. It’s a gem of a song. It was written in 1959 by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and recorded by Lefty Frizell, who had a big hit with it. Maybank and I never seem to tire of playing it. So, if you’re not either, then click and sing along. We played it in D.
