The Long Black Veil28 Mar 2013, by A SONG A DAY in
It’s Thursday and we have already recorded two murder ballads. This one was a hit in 1959 for Lefty Frizell and was co-written by Marijohn Wilkin, who was a successful Nashville songwriter. The song’s about a gravesite that’s visited by a woman in a black veil. In that grave is a man who was falsely accused of murder & executed. That man took a secret to the grave with him. The tale is told from his point of view.
