"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"

[Verse]

C C
There's a man, goin' 'round, takin' names

C C
And he decides, who to free, and who to blame

C C
Everybody, won't be treated, all the same

C C Am Am F F
There'll be a golden ladder, reaching down.

F F G G C C
When the man comes around.


C C
The hairs, on your arm, will stand up

C C
At the terror, in each sip, and each sup

C C
Will you partake of that last offered cup?

C C Am Am F F
Or disappear, into the potter's ground?

F F G G C C
When the man comes around.


[Chorus]

C C
Hear the trumpets hear the pipers

C C
One hundred million angels singin'

C C F F C C G G
Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum

G G
Voices callin', voices cryin'

G G
Some are born and some are dyin'

G G C C
It's Alpha and Omega's Kingdom come


[Bridge]

C C F F C C
And the whirlwind is in the thorn trees

C C
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks

C C F F C C
The whirlwind is in the thorn trees

C C
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks


[Second Verse]

C C
Till Armageddon no shalam, no shalom

C C
Then the father hen will call his chickens home

C C
The wise man will bow down before the throne

C C Am Am F F
And at his feet they will cast their golden crowns

F F G G C C
When the man comes around.


C C
Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still

C C
Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still

C C
Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still

C C Am Am F F
Listen to the words long written down

F F G G C C
When the man comes around


[Chorus]

C C
Hear the trumpets hear the pipers

C C
One hundred million angels singing

C C F F C C G G
Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum

G G
Voices callin', voices cryin'

G G
Some are born and some are dyin'

G G C C
It's Alpha and Omega's Kingdom come


[Bridge]

C C F F C C
And the whirlwind is in the thorn trees

C C
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks

C C F F C C
The whirlwind is in the thorn trees

C C
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks


C C Am Am F F
In measured hundred weight and penny pound

F F G G C C
When the Man comes around.

"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"
