‘00s Music Spotlight: The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash

I was watching a show on Netflix and this song caught my attention. This was my first time hearing it but because I’m a huge music fan and Johnny Cash has a unique vocal style I knew it was his voice I was hearing. The final version of “The Man Comes Around” track was released in 2002 on his “American IV: The Man Comes Around” album.

My Favorite Lyrics From this Track:

There's a man goin' 'round takin' names and he decides who to free and who to blame.
Everybody won't be treated all the same.

The hairs on your arm will stand up

Voices callin', voices cryin'. Some are born and some are dyin'.

Till armageddon no shalam, no shalom.

The wise man will bow down before the throne and at his feet they'll cast their golden crowns.

Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still, whoever is righteous let him be righteous still, whoever is filthy let him be filthy still.
