Everybody won't be treated  all the same[C]   [C]
There'll be a golden ladder reaching [Am]down[Am]    [F]
When the [G]Man comes a[C]round  [C]   [C]   [C]


The h[C]airs on your arm will stand up[C]   [C]
At the terror  in his sip  and in his sup[C]   [C]
Will you partake of that last offered cup[C]   [C]
Or disappear into the potters' g[Am]round[Am]    [F]
When the [G]Man comes a[C]round  [C]   [C]
Chorus:
  H[C]ear the trumpets, hear the pipers [C]   [C]
  One hundred million angels singing[C]   [C]
  Multitudes are marching to the b[F]ig kettle dr[G]um[G]
  Voices calling, voices crying [G]   [G]
  Some are born and some are dying [G]   [G]
  It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom c[C]ome. [C]

  And the wh[F]irlwind is in the th[C]orn tree[C]   [C]
  And the virgins are all trimming their wicks[C]  [C]
  The wh[F]irlwind is in the th[C]orn tree [C]
  It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks [C]  [C]

instr: C C

'Till arma[C]geddon no shalam no shalom [C]   [C]
Then the father-hen will call his chickens ho[C]me [C]
The wise men will bow down before the throne[C]   [C]
And at his feet they'll cast their golden [am]cro[am]wns[F]
When the [G]Man comes a[C]round [C]   [C]

Whoever is un[C]just let him be unjust still[C]
Whoever is [C]righteous let him be righteous still[C]
Whoever is [C]filthy let him be filthy still[C]
Listen to the words long written [Am]down[Am]    [F]
When the [G]Man comes a[C]round [C]   [C]
  [repeat cborus] 
  In m[C]easured hundredweight and penny p[Am]ound[Am]    [F]
  When the M[G]an comes ar[C]ound.

Outro: (spoken)
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
and I looked and behold a pale horse and his name
that sat on him was death, and hell followed with him.
