"God's Gonna Cut You Down" as written by and John R. Cash Unknown Pd Writer....
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 down 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 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down

    General CommentFirst off
    I LOVE this song
    I always think of an frustrated evangelist
    Wanting people to stop being stupid
    So there like
    "You may not listen to me
    when I tell you to cut the crap
    But it'll come back on you one day"
    Lol

    General CommentI love this song. It's really just saying repent to God, becuase you can try to run from Him, but you can never hide.

    General CommentI think its Johnny's personal relation to Christ and how he's trying to warn sinners of God's judgment?


    Sounds like it.

    General CommentI knew that this song sounded familiar...I don't think Moby's "Run On" is original, but it has the exact same lyrics.

    General CommentThis song is a traditional hymn, more than likely making it incredibly easy for Moby to liberally use these lyrics.

    Back on subject, this is an amazing track.

    General CommentNo kidding...I hate Moby, by the way. He's such an arrogant, self-righteous A-hole.

    Anyways, Johhny Cash's version kicks the pasty white ass of Moby's version. Great track indeed!
