Lord God Almighty let me tell the news
My head got wet in midnight dew
Great God i been down on my bended knees
Talking to a man from galilee
Michael spoke and he sound so sweet
I thought i heard the shuffle of angels' feet
He put one hand upon my head
Great God Almighty let me tell you what He said

[bridge:]
Go tell that lonesome liar
Go tell that midnight rider [???]
Tell the gamblin' ramblin' backslider
Tell them God Almighty gonna cut 'em down

[chorus:]
You might run on for a long time
Run on, ducking and dodging
Run on, children [?], for a long time
Let me tell you God Almighty gonna cut you down

You might throw your rock [?], hide your head
Work in the dark with your fellow men
Sure as God made you rich and poor
You're gonna reap just what you sow

[chorus] x3

Some people go to church just to signify
Trying to make a date with a neighbor's wife
Brother let me tell you just as sure as you're born
You better leave that woman alone

[bridge]
[chorus] x8
