God’s Gonna Cut You Down

You can run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time.
Sooner or later gotta cut you down
Sooner or later, gotta cut you down

Go tell that long tounged 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 midninght dew
I’ve been down on bended knee, talkin’ to the man from Galilee
He spoke to me in a 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 tounged 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 gotta cut you down
Sooner or later, gotta 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 gotta cut you down
Sooner or later, gotta cut you down

Go tell that long tounged 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
