Lyrics

God's gonna cut you down
(Traditional)

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 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
Tell 'em that god's gonna cut 'em down

Well my goodness gracious let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee talkin' to the man from galilee
He spoke to me in the voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said, "john go do my will!"

Go 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
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

Well you may throw your rock and 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 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 you down
Tell 'em that god's gonna cut you down
Tell 'em that god's gonna cut you down
