Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

the man comes around  Johnny Cash

There's a [C]man   goin' round   takin' names[C] [C]
And he decides  who to free  and who to blame[C] [C]
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 each sip  and in each 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]
  H[C]ear the trumpets, hear the pipers[C] [C]
  Onehundred million angels singing[C] [C]
  Multitudes are marching to the b[F]ig k[C]ettle dr[G]um[G]
  Voices calling voices crying[G] [G]
  Some are born and some of dying[G] [G]
  It's Alpha and Omega's kingdome c[C]ome.[C]
  And the wh[F]irlwind is in the th[C]orntree[C] [C]
  And the virgins are all trimming their wicks[C] [C]
  The wh[F]irlwind is in the th[C]orntree[C]
  It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks[C] [C]
instr: C C
'Till arma[C]geddon no shalam no shalome[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 chorus)
  In m[C]easured hundredweight and pennyp[am]ound[am] [F]
  When the M[G]an comes ar[C]ound.

Outro: (spoken)
And I heard a voice amidst 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.

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
