Stories

    I love stories. I just love any media that tells a good story. Be it a movie, a comic book or a play. However, songs and poems are not about stories. They're more about expression of a sentiment and less about narration. Yet , when a song does incorporate a story, it becomes all the more beautiful because of the very sublime element inherent in the medium of music.

    The medium of music is about no fuss. And when you do have a story to top it off, nothing like it!

    "Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
    Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
    There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
    That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me

    The judge said son, what is your alibi
    If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
    I spoke not a word, thou it meant my life
    For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

    She walks these hills in a long black veil
    She visits my grave when the night winds wail
    Nobody knows, nobody sees
    Nobody knows but me

    Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
    She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
    But late at night, when the north wind blows
    In a long black veil, she cries ov're my bones "

    - Long Black Veil originally sung by Lefty Frizzell

    Nobody knows, nobody sees
    Nobody knows but me...
