That was a big hit in the 60s when folk music ruled.
How about "John Reilly"? Although you would have to be braindead not to know it was him.
There's another about a man sentenced to be hung for murder. "Nobody knows; nobody sees; nobody knows but me". His only alibi is his best friends wife.They were together when the murder took place.
