The Charlie Daniels Band – A Day In The Life lyrics

It was just another day in the life of Planet Earth
Twenty four more hours going by
Traffic was heavy and there was a little rain
Babies were born and people died

Up in Alaska, it was thirty one below
Down in Miami, it was hot
Honky tonks were crowning and the people partied on
In church a couple tied the knot

Headline screamed about the rapid spread of aids
Famine and war were in the news
An earthquake shook some far of the corner of the world
Another child had been abused

There's something happen in the twinkling of an eye
Some watched in horror as the plane fell from the sky
Trains ran wild and cars were crashing
Pair of ships without a captain
Millions of people had just vanished from the earth

Panic and confusion were the order of the day
Grown men were weeping and some people try to pray
A mocking echo in the madness seem to say, it's too late

And then a stranger stepped on to the tv screen
He said, "Don't worry, I'm the one
Who will bring peace to every corner of this earth
And now the world shall be as one"

All kings and governments will give their power to me
I'll put a mark in your right hand
For three and one half years the whole world was at peace
And darkness fell upon the land

He went into the temple in Jerusalem one day
He said, "I'm God, you all must bow"
To the valley of Megiddo came the armies of the world
It look as though the end was coming now

And something happening in the twinkling of an eye
The mighty trumpet blast and in the Eastern sky
Came Jesus on a snow white horse
Leaned ahead and shining forces
This is the hour of the final victory

The ones who wore the mark were shouting, "Satan, you're a liar"
As angels bound him up and threw him in the lake of fire
Praises to God's name will bring him, all the saints were singing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
