The Man Comes Around
By Johnny Cash

Intro spoken:

And I heard as it were the noise of thunder,
One of the four beasts saying: 'Come and see'
and I saw, and behold a white horse

There's a man goin' round takin' names

And he decides who to free and who to blame

Everybody won't be treated  all the same
                          (walkdown) Am    F
There'll be a golden ladder reaching down
         G          C
When the man comes around

The hairs on your arm will stand up
At the terror  in his sip  and in his sup
Will you partake of that last offered cup
Or disappear into the potters' ground
When the man comes around

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers
One hundred million angels singing
                               F          G
Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum
Voices calling voices crying
Some are born and some of dying
It's Alpha and Omega's kingdome come

        F                   C
And the whirlwind is in the thorntree
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks
    F                   C
The whirlwind is in the thorntree
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks

'Till Armageddon no shalam no shalome
Then the father-hen will call his chickens home
The wise men will bow down before the throne
And at his feet they'll cast their golden crowns
When the man comes around

Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still
Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still
Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still
Listen to the words long written down
When the man comes around


   C                               Am    F
In measured hundredweight and pennypound
         G          C
When the man comes around
