Verse:
CC chord  
There's a man goin' 'round takin' names. 

An' he decides who to free and who to blame. 

Everybody won't be treated all the same.
                                       AmAm chord     FF chord     GG chord            CC chord  
There'll be a golden ladder reaching down. When the man comes around. 
CC chord  
The hairs on your arm will stand up. 

At the terror in each sip and in each sup. 

For you partake of that last offered cup, 
                                   AmAm chord
Or disappear into the potter's ground. 
   FF chord     GG chord              CC chord
When the man comes around.

Chorus:
CC chord                               CC chord 
Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. 
CC chord                               CC chord 
One hundred million angels singin'. 
CC chord                                         GG chord
Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum. 

Voices callin', voices cryin'. 

Some are born an' some are dyin'. 
                                 CC chord 
It's Alpha's and Omega's Kingdom come. 
        FF chord                   CC chord       
And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. 
    CC chord  
The virgins are all trimming their wicks.
    FF chord                   CC chord
The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. 
     CC chord  
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 

Verse:
CC chord  
Till Armageddon, no Shalam, no Shalom. 

Then the father hen will call his chickens home. 

The wise men will bow down before the throne. 
                                          AmAm chord
And at his feet they'll cast their golden crown. 
   FF chord     GG chord            CC chord   
When the man comes around. 

Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still. 

Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still. 

Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still. 
                                   AmAm chord
Listen to the words long written down, 
   FF chord     GG chord              CC chord
When the man comes around. 

Chorus:
CC chord                                CC chord 
Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. 
CC chord                                CC chord 
One hundred million angels singin'. 
CC chord                                         GG chord

In measured hundredweight and penny pound.
   FF chord     GG chord              CC chord
When the man comes around.
