The Man Comes Around è la title-track dell’ultimo album (American IV: The Man Comes Around) pubblicato da Johnny Cash nel 2002, prima della sua morte, nonchè una delle ultime canzoni da lui scritte. L’intera canzone fa riferimento ad una supposta venuta di un secondo Gesù Cristo, ed il testo contiene una notevole quantità di riferimenti biblici, in special modo dall’Apocalisse di Giovanni: tale venuta coinciderà con un grande giorno del giudizio per l’intera umanità.

When the man comes around.

  C
  The hair’s on you arm will stand up.
At the terror of his sip and in his sup.
Will you pertake of that last offered cup?
Or disappear into the potter’s ground?

        C                                 C/D(032013)
Chorus: Hear the trumpets hear the pipers.
 C                                 C/D
One Hundred Million Angels singing.
 C                             F     G
Multitudes are marchin’ to the big, Kettle drum.

Voices callin’ voices cryin’

Some are born and some are dyin’
                                     C
It’s Alpha and Omega’s Kingdom come.

F                              C/D
And the whirlwinds are in the thorn trees
C
The Virgins are all trimming their wicks.
F                              C/D
And the whirlwinds are in the thorn trees.
C
It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

C
Till Armagedden No sha lom, No sha lome.
And the father will call his chickens home.
The wise men will bow before the throne.
And at his feet they will cast the golden crown

RIFF
When the man comes around

C
Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still.
Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still.
Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy.
Listen to the words long written down.

RIFF
When the Man comes Around.

Chorus

C
In measure hundred weight and coming down.

RIFF
When the man comes around

C
End on C7
