The Man - Lyrics

It was a winter's night, cold had a hell of a bite when the collector came to town
An unfortunate soul for six feet below sent to send the sinners down
So he's not all bad but hell he ain't no good, when you see him it's too late to pray
Kid he don't show his face unless it's time to pay and well I guess today's your day

"Put it all on black" he said with the devil in his eye
A pinstripe suit, and a .45, and a blood red bottle of wine
Long before you he's shot down a few but none he knew by name
Just a bottle of vino, in an old casino, and a mask to hide his pain

You'll never see him coming, no one ever sees him leave
My friend your time has come, you'd best believe, he'll shoot you down
He'll shoot you down

He said "You know who you are and you know why I've come, you've done wrong one too many times
I knew it was you by the devil in your eye 'cause they're burning just like mine
I'll give you one chance to walk out the door, let this dealer here decide
So put your soul down on this next round 'cause I'm collecting souls tonight"

He came to shoot you down
He came to shoot you down
He came to shoot you down
He came to shoot you down

And he laid it down. He put his soul on the line
Yeah he laid it down one last time
To keep on living the way he's been living
To keep on sinning the way he's been sinning

When that ball fell red a shot rang out and it deadened every sound
All he left was a smoking gun on the table and a body on the ground
So if you know you're trouble, know there's eyes on you and you're running out of time
When you're sitting at the table against a pinstripe suit and a blood red bottle of wine

You'll never see him coming, no one ever sees him leave
My friend don't try to run, you'd best believe, he'll shoot you down
He'll shoot you down
He'll shoot you down
He'll shoot you down
He'll shoot you down

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 feet in the ground
He'll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 shots in a round
He'll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 shots and you're down
He'll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 feet in the ground
He'll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 feet in the ground
He'll shoot you down
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 shots in a round
He'll shoot you down
