Johnny Cash - The old account

  (capo 3rd fret)





(verse 1)
        D                                         D7
Well it was a time on earth when in the books of heaven
    G                D           E          A 
An old account was standing for sins yet unforgiven 
    D                                   D7
My name was at the top and many things below 
        G             D          A              D
But I went unto the keeper and settled it long ago


 

(chorus)
      A                           D
Long ago (down on my knees) long ago (I settled it all) 
                                      D
Yes the old account was settled long ago (hallelujah) 
          D                             G             D
And the record's clear today cause he washed my sins away 
                           A          D
And the old account was settled long ago 




(verse 2)
          D                                       D7 
Well the old account was large and growin' every day 
    G              D            E               A
And I was always sinnin' and I never tried to pray 
     D                                         D7 
But when I looked ahead and saw such pain and woe 
        G              D          A              D 
Well I went unto the keeper and settled it long ago 

Long ago (down on my knees)





(chorus)
      A                           D
Long ago (down on my knees) long ago (I settled it all) 
                                      D
Yes the old account was settled long ago (hallelujah) 
          D                             G             D
And the record's clear today cause he washed my sins away 
                           A          D
And the old account was settled long ago 




(verse 3)
Now sinner seek the Lord repent of all your sins 
Cause this he has commanded if you would enter in 
And then if you should live a hundred years below 
Well you know you got it settled cause you settled it long ago 
Long ago (down on my knees)



(chorus)
      A                           D
Long ago (down on my knees) long ago (I settled it all) 
                                      D
Yes the old account was settled long ago (hallelujah) 
          D                             G             D
And the record's clear today cause he washed my sins away 
                           A          D
And the old account was settled long ago
