Lyrics[edit]

 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 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 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 you down
 Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
 Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
