The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash on the album: American IV: The Man Comes Around

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

Sung:
C1
	There's a man going around taking names and he decides
Who to free and who to blame every body won't be treated
							Am  F    G
All the same there will 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 each sup will you partake of that last offered cup
					Am  F    G
Or disappear into the potter's ground
When the man comes around

CHOURS
C2                               C3	C2				C3
Hear the trumpets hear the pipers 	one hundred million angels singing
C2
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum
G
Voices calling and voices crying
Some are born and some are dying
                               C1(nm)
Its alpha and omegas kingdom come
C1(nm)
And the whirlwind is in the thorn trees
C1
The virgins are all trimming their wicks
F
The whirlwind is in the thorn trees
C1
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks
Till Armageddon no shalam no shalom

Then the father hen will call his chicken's home
The wise man will bow down before the thorn and at his feet
				Am  F    G
They will cast the 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 still
					Am  F    G
Listen to the words long written down
When the man comes around

CHOURS
C2                               C3	C2				C3
Hear the trumpets hear the pipers 	one hundred million angels singing
C2
Multitudes are marching to a big kettledrum
G
Voices calling and voices crying
Some are born and some are dying
                               C1(nm)
Its alpha and omegas kingdom come
C1(nm)
And the whirlwind is in the thorn trees
C1
The virgins are all trimming their wicks
F
The whirlwind is in the thorn trees
C1
It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks
Till Armageddon no shalam no shalom

Then the father hen will call his chicken's home
The wise man will bow down before the thorn and at his feet
				Am  F    G
They will cast the golden crowns
When the man comes around

Spoken:
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
And I looked and behold, a pale horse
And it's name it said on him was Death
And Hell followed with him.

This tab can use more guitar. I need to know how to play this song not how to sing it.

It'd be nice to have actual tabs instead of chords, I'm not very good at remember chords and hate to have to frequently look at a chart, and compare it to the music, since there is NO form of timing whatsoever.
