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 

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]
