Johnny Cash: "The Man Comes Around" Lyrics

Opening Introduction (Spoken part)

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

Song

There’s a man going around 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 in each sup
Will you partake of that last offered cup
Or disappear into the potter’s ground
When the man comes around
