Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed

If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows but me
Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
But late at night, when the north wind blows
