-------------------------------------------------------

[F]G    [133211](320001)
C2 (X32010)
C3 (X32013)

Ok, so here goes. C1 is a muted chord you just have to listen to the song
to hear the pattern. I know there are at least two guitars in this song but
this is just how I figured it out for one and it sounds ok to me.
I definitely would like any kind of feedback on this as this is my
VERY first tab work.

Enjoy! Johnny Cash is and forever shall be "THE MAN"

Below are the chord changes that have a little picking part to it.
Listen to the song and it will all make sense.

Ok, for the rest of the song you can basically listen and figure
out the changes the pickings are all the same. Here's the lyrics
with the chords.


THIS IS 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

[C1]there's a man goin' round takin' names and he decides who to free
and who to blame everybody will be treated all the same
there'll be a golden ladder reaching down[Am]    [F]   wh[G]en the

man comes around

   [C1]the hairs on your arm will stand up at the terror in each sip

and in each sup will you partake of that last offered cup? or
or disappear onto the potter's grou[Am]nd  [F]    [G]

CHORUS
[C2]  hear the trumpets hear the pipers[C3]        [C2]one hundred million
angels singing[C3]    [C2]multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum
  [G]voices calling voices crying some are born and some are dying
its alpha and omega's kingdom [C1(nm]come    [F] and the whirlwind is in the
thorn tree [C1]the virgins are all trimming their wings  [F]the

whirlwind is in the thorn tree
[C1]its hard for thee to kick against the pricks til armegeddon no

shalom 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[Am]    [F]  wh[G]en the man comes around
[C1]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[Am]    [F]   wh[G]en the

man comes around

CHORUS
[C1]                                     
it's hard for thee to kick against the pricks in measured hundred
weight and paid pound[Am]    [F]  whe[G]n the man comes around[C1(nm]

THIS IS 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

The final C chord ends with a strong down up

END
