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 chordC
There's a man goin' 'round takin' names

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

C chordC
Everybody won't be treated all the same

C chordC Am chordAm F chordF
There'll be a golden ladder reaching down

F chordF G chordG C chordC
When the man comes around


C chordC
The hairs on your arm will stand up

C chordC
At the terror in each sip and each sup

C chordC
Will you partake of that last offered cup

C chordC Am chordAm F chordF
Or disappear into the potter's ground

F chordF G chordG C chordC
When the man comes around


[Chorus]

C chordC
Hear the trumpets hear the pipers

C chordC
One hundred million angels singin'

C chordC F chordF C chordC G chordG
Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum

G chordG
Voices callin' voices cryin'

G chordG
Some are born and some are dyin'

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


[Bridge]

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

C chordC
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks

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

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


[Second Verse]

C chordC
Till Armageddon no shalam no shalom

C chordC
Then the father hen will call his chickens home

C chordC
The wise man will bow down before the throne

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

F chordF G chordG C chordC
When the man comes around


C chordC
Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still

C chordC
Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still

C chordC
Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still

C chordC Am chordAm F chordF
Listen to the words long written down

F chordF G chordG C chordC
When the man comes around


[Chorus]

C chordC
Hear the trumpets hear the pipers

C chordC
One hundred million angels singing

C chordC F chordF C chordC G chordG
Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum

G chordG
Voices callin' voices cryin'

G chordG
Some are born and some are dyin'

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


[Bridge]

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

And the virgins are all trimming their wicks

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

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks


C chordC Am chordAm F chordF
In measured hundred weight and penny pound

F chordF G chordG C chordC
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
