When the Man Comes Around- Johnny "The Real King" Cash
-------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Micheal Edsall_Cruz
Email:redtrailrunner@hotmail.com

Tuning: I don't know, but the guitar is in standard tuning. 
Sorry, I can't read music and I know nothing of music theory.

chords are
      EADGBe
C1   (332010)
Am   (X02210)
F    (133211)
G    (320001)
C2   (X32010)
C3   (X32013)

Ok, so here goes.  C1 is a muted chord you just have to listen to the song
to hear the pattern. I know there are at least two guitars in this song but
this is just how I figured it out for one and it sounds ok to me.
I definitely would like any kind of feedback on this as this is my
VERY first tab work.

Enjoy!  Johnny Cash is and forever shall be "THE MAN"

Below are the chord changes that have a little picking part to it.
Listen to the song and it will all make sense.

       (n-m) means non-muted

   C1                               Am             F   G   C1 (n-m)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------3---2---0-----------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
....a Golden Ladder reaching down       

    C1                          
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|

     The hairs on your arm... 

  C1                          Am              F    G        C2

....into the Potter's ground
C2 G e|---------------------------3-----------------------------------| B|---------------------------0-----------------------------------| G|---------------------------0-----------------------------------| D|-----------0---2---3---2---0-----------------------------------| A|---------------------------2-----------------------------------| E|---------------------------3-----------------------------------| ...marching to the big kettle drum.... C1(n-m) e|---------------------------------------------------------------| B|---------------------------------------------------------------| G|---------------------------------------------------------------| D|---------------------------------------------------------------| A|------------------------0---2---3------------------------------| E|---------------------------------------------------------------| ...it's Alpha and Omega's Kingdom come. Ok, for the rest of the song you can basically listen and figure out the changes the pickings are all the same. Here's the lyrics with the chords. THIS IS SPOKEN And I heard as it were the noise of thunder. One of the four beasts saying, "Come and see". and I saw and behold a white horse C1 there's a man goin' round takin' names and he decides who to free and who to blame everybody will be treated all the same Am F G there'll be a golden ladder reaching down when the man comes around C1 the hairs on your arm will stand up at the terror in each sip and in each sup will you partake of that last offered cup? or Am F G or disappear onto the potter's ground CHORUS C2 C3 C2 hear the trumpets hear the pipers one hundred million
C3 C2 angels singing multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum
G voices calling voices crying some are born and some are dying C1(nm) F its alpha and omega's kingdom come and the whirlwind is in the C1 F thorn tree the virgins are all trimming their wings the whirlwind is in the thorn tree C1 its hard for thee to kick against the pricks til armegeddon no shalom no shalome then the father hen will call his chickens home the wise men will bow down before the throne and at his feet Am F G they'll cast their golden crowns when the man comes around C1 whoever is unjust let him be unjust still whoever is righteous let him be righteous still whoever is filthy let him be filthy Am F G still listen to the words long written down when the man comes around CHORUS C1 it's hard for thee to kick against the pricks in measured hundred Am F G C1(nm) weight and paid pound when the man comes around THIS IS SPOKEN.. and i heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts and i looked and behold a pale horse and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him The final C chord ends with a strong down up
