When The Man Comes Around

	  Intro (Spoken) 

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… 

First Verse 
----------- 
C…   
There's a man, going around, taking names 
C…   
And he decides, who to free, and who to blame 
C…  
Every body, won't be treated, quite the same 
C                              Am      F 
There'll be a golden ladder, reaching down. 
F         G            C 
When the man comes around. 

C… 
The hairs on your arm will stand up 
C…   
At the terror in each Sip and each sup 
C…   
Will you partake of that last offered cup? 
C                              Am      F        
Or disappear into the potter's ground? 
F         G            C 
When the man comes around. 

Chorus 
--------------- 
C…     
Hear the Trumpets hear the pipers 
C… 
One hundred million angels singing  
C                           F    C    G 
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum 
G… 
Voices calling, voices crying  
G…        
Some are born and some are dying 
G                                C 
It's Alpha and Omega Kingdom come 
C        F                  C 
And the wirldwind in the thorn trees 
C….. 
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks 

C     F                     C 
The wirldwind in the thorn trees 
C…     
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks 
C… 
Till Armageddon no shalom, no shalom 

Second Verse 
------------ 
C… 
Then the father hen will call his chicken's home 
C… 
The wise man will bow down before the thorn 
C                       Am     F 
And at his feet they will cast the golden crowns… 
F         G            C 
When the man comes around. 

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

Chorus 
------- 
C…     
Hear the Trumpets hear the pipers 
C… 
One hundred million angels singing  
C                           F    C    G 
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum 
G… 
Voices calling, voices crying  
G…        
Some are born and some are dying 
G                                C 
It's Alpha and Omega Kingdom come 
C        F                  C 
And the wirldwind in the thorn trees 
C… 
And the virgins are all trimming their wicks 
C     F                     C 
The wirldwind in the thorn trees 

Outro (Spoken) 
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts 
and I looked and behold, a pale horse 
and its name it said on him was Death 
And Hell followed with him.
