lyrics

Run on for a long time
Run on, ducking and dodging
Run on for a long time
But sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you 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
Talking to the man from Galilee

He spoke to me in a voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of angels' feet

He spoke to me and my heart stood still
When he said, "My son, go on and do my will."

I want you to tell that long-tongued liar
Tell that midnight rider
Tell the Rambler, the gambler, the back-biter
That sooner or later God'll cut 'em down
Sooner or later God'll cut 'em down

You can throw your rock and hide you hand
Working in the dark against your fellow man

But as sure as God made black and white
What's done in the darkness will come back in the light

Run onRun on for a long time
Run on, ducking and dodging
Run on for a long time
But sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

You can run on for a long time
You can run on
You can run on but He'll get you
