Long Black Veil – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics

Long Black Veil was written by Marijohn Wilkin and Danny Dill in 1959 and recorded that same year by country singer Lefty Frizzell. After it was written Dill called it an “instant folksong.” Lefty’s record reached #6 on the country charts, but over the years it has become even more popular, being recorded by hundreds of artists including Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews Band, Joan Baez, and The Band even performed it at Woodstock in 1969. It was written from the man’s perspective, but in 1960 in an unreleased version, co-writer Marijohn Wilkin recorded a different version from the female perspective.
