Cash Johnny

This is one of my favorite Johnny Cash songs. NOT sure about all the lyrics. The song is about Christ coming back.

“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 goin’ ‘round takin’ names.
And he decides who to free and who to blame.
Everybody won’t be treated all the same.
There will be a golden ladder hanging down.

Riffy thingy: You will have to listen to the song to get the timing right.
           Am         F     G
When the man comes around.

  The hair’s on you arm will stand up.
At the terror of his sip and in his sup.
Will you pertake of that last offered cup?
Or disappear into the potter’s ground?

Riffy Thingy

        C                                 C/D(032013)
Chorus: Hear the trumpets hear the pipers.
 C                                 C/D
One Hundred Million Angels singing.
 C                             F     G
Multitudes are marchin’ to the big, Kettle drum.

Voices callin’ voices cryin’

Some are born and some are dyin’
It’s Alpha and Omega’s Kingdom come.

F                              C/D
And the whirlwinds are in the thorn trees
The Virgins are all trimming their wicks.
F                              C/D
And the whirlwinds are in the thorn trees.
It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Till Armagedden No sha lom, No sha lome.
And the father will call his chickens home.
The wise men will bow before the throne.
And at his feet they will cast the golden crown

Riffy thingy
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.
Listen to the words long written down.

Riffy Thingy
When the Man comes Around.


In measure hundred weight and coming down.

Riffy Thingy
When the man comes around

End on C7
