Sermon (Demo) - Lyrics

A-one, two, three, four

Let me set the mood, set the situation
Imagine you're sittin' in a congregation
Hey, he's talkin' 'bout the judgment day
If you listen real close, here's what he say

You may run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
You may run on for a long time
But let me tell you
God Almighty gonna cut you down

Gonna tell that long-tongued liar
Gonna tell that midnight rider
And tell the gambler, rambler, backbiter
Tell him
God Almighty gonna cut him down

Great God Almighty, let me tell you news
My head's been wet with the midnight dews
I been down on my bended knees
And talkin' to the man from Galilee

My God spoke, He spoke so sweet
I thought I heard the shufflin' of angels' feet
He put one hand on my head
Great God Almighty, let me tell you what He said

You may run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
You may run on for a long time
Let me tell you
God Almighty gonna cut you down

You may throw a rock, hide your hand
Workin' in the dark against your fellow man
But sure as God made the day and night
What you do in the dark will be brought to light

You may slip and slide, slip and slide
Try to remove from your neighbor's eye
But sure as the God made the rich and poor
What you reap, my brother, is what you sow

You may run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
You may run on for a long time
But let me tell you
God Almighty gonna cut you down

Some people go to church just to signify
They try to make a date with their neighbor's wife
But neighbor, let me tell you just as sure as your born
You better leave that woman, better leave her alone

One of these days, just mark my words
You'll think that your brother's gone off to work
Well now, you'll walk up and you knock on the door
Well that's all brother, there ain't no more

You're gonna run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
You're gonna run on for a long time
Then tell you
God Almighty gonna cut you down

Gonna tell that long-tongue rider
Gonna tell that midnight rider
Well, tell the rambler, gambler, backbiter
Tell him
God Almighty gonna cut him down

Alright
