  • 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

    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

    [Chorus: x8] Writer/s: RICHARD MELVILLE HALL
