You also have the Bands version from Big Pink.

How about this:

E]Ten years ago on a cold dark night
There was [B]someone killed 'neath the [Am]town hall [E]light
[E]There were few at the scene and they all did agree
That the [B]man who ran looked a [Am]lot like [E]me.
[E]The judge said, "Son, what is your alibi?
If you were [B]somewhere else then [Am]you won't have to [E]die."
[E]I said not a word though it meant my life,
I had [B]been in the arms of my [Am]best friend's [E]wife.
[Am]She walks these [E]hills [Am]in a long black [E]veil.
[Am]She visits my gr[E]ave [Am]when the night winds [E]wail.
[E]Nobody knows, no, and [Am]nobody [E]sees; [E]nobody [B]knows but [Am]me.
[E]The scaffold was high and eternity near
She [B]stood in the crowd and [Am]shed not a [E]tear
[E]But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans
In a [B]long black veil she [Am]cries over my [E]bones.
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave where the night winds wail.
Nobody knows, no, and nobody sees; nobody knows but me.

Long Black Veil
(traditional)

D
Ten years ago on a cold dark night
..........A.........................G..........D
There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light
D
Few there at the scene, but they all agree
.........A.......................G........D
That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

The judge said "Son, what is your alibi
You were somewhere else you won't have to die"
I spoke not a word, though it meant my life
I have been in the arms of my best friends wife

(Chorus)
G...............D.....G...............D
She walks these hills in a long black veil
G.........D.....G....................D
Visits my grave when the night winds wail
D.............G.......D
Nobody knows, nobody sees,
G......D.....A...D
Nobody knows but me

The gallows were close, and eternity near
She stood in the crowd, and shed not a tear
Sometimes at night, when the cold wind blow
In a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones

(Chorus)

Nobody knows but me x2

Awesome guys, appreciate it a whole lot.

Checked out those links, great resource for sure.

Now all I have to do is learn some mandolin to go long with my other hobbies!

peace, fdh
