Run On Lyrics - Elvis Presley

Review The Song (3)



(Traditional - arranged by Elvis Presley)
Well you may run on for a long time
Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty's gonna cut you down

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, the rambler, the back-biter
Tell them God almighty's gonna cut them down

Stop God almighty let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dews
Coming down on my bended knees
Talking to the man from Galilee
My God spoke and he spoke so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of angel's feet
He put one hand upon my head

Great God almighty let me tell you what he said

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, the rambler, the back-biter
Tell them God almighty's gonna cut them down

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time,
Let me tell you God almighty's gonna cut you down

You may throw your rock and hide your hand
Working in the dark against your fellow man
As sure as God made the day and the night
What you do in the dark will be brought to the light
You may run and hide, slip and slide
Trying to take the mote from your neighbour's eyes
As sure as God made the rich and poor
You gonna reap just what you saw

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty's gonna cut you down
Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, the rambler, the back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Some people go to church just to sit in the fire
Trying to make a date with the neighbour's wife
Brother let me tell you as sure as you're born
You better leave that woman alone
Because one of these days mark my word
You think that brother is going to work
And you'll sneak up and knock on that door
That's all brother you'll knock no more

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty's gonna cut you down
Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, the rambler,the back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Cool song | Reviewer: patriot1 | 10/30/11

I play in a gospel band. We have this guy in our band who sings like Elvis. I'm going to try and talk the band into doing this. It's like a one chord song, key of F. I've come up with a simple but cool grooving bass line for it already. It would be such a fun song to play!



It's Sow not Saw and not Sew, either | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/20/11

I doubt that it says "stop" God almighty but I don't know what would replace it--plus it's sow not saw and not sew, either. Sow as in sowing grain. It goes with the image of reaping a harvest (like grain).



Great Song - REALLY LISTEN TO THE WORDS | Reviewer: Anita | 8/14/09

We could all learn alot from these words. I love Elvis Presley Gospel. There is one error I found in the line that reads "You gonna reap just what you saw". The last word is wrong. It should be "You gonna reap just what you sew". Thanks for your website.
