Johnny Cash - God's Gonna Cut You Down Lyrics

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go and tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambiler the gambler the back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Well my goodness gracious
Let me tell you the news
My heads been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee
Talkin to the man from Galiee
He spoke to me in a voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of angels feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When He said "John go do my will"

Go and tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler the gambler the back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

You can throw your rock hide your hand
Workin in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What's done in the dark
Will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go and tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler the gambler the back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
