Long Black Veil (mp3)

This song has been performed by many artists over the years, perhaps most popularly by Johnny Cash. Dave first covered it at a 1999 tribute to Cash and has said that he thinks of it as a Johnny Cash song, though it was neither written nor originally performed by Cash but rather by Lefty Frizzell in 1959.
