The Man Comes Around Lyrics - Johnny Cash



Review The Song (5)


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

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers
One hundred million angels singing
Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum
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 man 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 kettledrum
Voices calling and 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 hundred weight and penney pound
When the Man comes around.

Close (Spoken part)
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.

You agnostics get it, so are you too lazy to believe? | Reviewer: Matt Dunivan | 2/26/14

Great song. Coming from a man who beat his own army of demons to spread the Word of God. Shelbi, you pretty annoying yourself but I know you can't help it. Without God's love and His Son's gift of salvation I couldn't help being a moron either

Agreed | Reviewer: Shelbi | 6/20/13

Well put Richard. Johnny Cash has an awesome voice. The song expresses an interesting theological view, or at least a good apocalypse story. You people and your religious are seriously annoying. If there is a god, and he/she is Christian, your own holy book states that HE DOES NOT LIKE US!!!

Blessed Appearance | Reviewer: Robert C. | 1/2/13

Who will abide the day of His coming?
There will be two distinct people's on that last day, those who believe, and those who do not.
Johnny has captured somewhat of the feel of that day, but there will be no room for anyone to argue with God, every mouth will be stopped and those who denied God his rightful praise will be ashamed.
I also like the grave song that Johnny did, it is true that there ain't no grave that can hold this body down! When Jesus appears the battle is over!

The Shock and Awe of the Second Coming | Reviewer: Thad | 12/6/12

This song is about the terrible and the wonder of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Terrible because those who wanted to change their lives will realize it is too late, and wonder because those who believed will be grateful they did.

Stupid message, awesome song. | Reviewer: Richard | 11/2/12

This song is about a fascist dictator God, coming down on earth to force his self-centred rule on creatures he created to be free, why? Well if you are omnipotent and all alone forever you create dolls to play with.
-_- why do they even want to believe this crap, its not like this would be a positive thing for anyone, not even good people, it would be horrible for everyone except God.

Nontheless Johnny Cash´s voice is great and this song is awesome.
