Intro:
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

Mute Strings On Strums Down Up Down Up
Play last C C on Down Strum.

X X X X C C C C C C
There's a man goin' round takin' names
C C C C
And he decides who to free and who to blame
C C C C
Everybody won't be treated all the same
am am F F
There'll be a golden ladder reaching down
G G C C C C C C C C
When the Man comes around


C C C C C C
The hairs on your arm will stand up
C C C C
At the terror in his sip and in his sup
C C C C
Will you partake of that last offered cup
am am F F
Or disappear into the potters' ground
G G C C C C C C
When the Man comes around


Chorus:
C C C C C C
Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers
C C C C
One hundred million angels singing
F F G G G G
Multitudes are marching to the big cattle drum
G G G G
Voices calling voices crying
G G G G
Some are born and some of dying
C C C C
It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come.

F F C C C C C C
And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree
C C C C
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks
F F C C C C
The whirlwind is in the thorn tree
C C C C
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks


instr: C C C C

C C C C C C
'Till armageddon no shalam no shalome
C C C C
Then the father-hen will call his chickens home
C C C C
The wise men will bow down before the throne
am am F F
And at his feet they'll cast their golden crowns
G G C C C C C C
When the Man comes around


C C C C
Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still
C C C C
Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still
C C C C
Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still
am am F F
Listen to the words long written down
G G C C C C C C
When the Man comes around



[repeat chorus]

C C am am F F
In measured hundredweight and pennypound
G G C C
When the Man comes around.
