The Man Comes Around (Alt take) (Cash Johnny)

The Man Comes Around (Alt take) Lyrics 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 going 'round taking names And he decides who to free and who to blame Everybody won't be treated all the same There'll be a golden ladder reaching down When the man comes around The hairs on your arm will stand up At the terror in each sip and each sup Will you partake of that last offered cup Or disappear into the potter's ground When the man comes around CHORUS Hear the trumpets hear the pipers One hundred million angels singing Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum Voices calling, voices crying Some are born and some are dying It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree The virgins are all trimming their wicks The whirlwind is in the thorn tree It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks Till Armageddon no shalam, no shalom 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 Hear the trumpets hear the pipers One hundred million angels singing Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum Voices calling, voices crying Some are born and some are dying It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree The virgins are all trimming their wicks The whirlwind is in the thorn tree It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks In measured a hundred weight and penny pound When the man comes around And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts And I looked and behold, a pale horse And it's name that sat on him was Death And Hell followed with him.
