Man in Black

Johnny Cash

G A
Well, you wonder why I always dress in black, Why you never see bright colors on my back,
C G C G A D D7
And why does my appearance seem to have a sombre tone,Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.
 
G A
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down, Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town.
C G C G A D D7
I wear it for the prisoner, who has long paid for his crime, But is there because he's a victim of the times.
 
G A
I wear the black for those who've never read, Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
C G C G A D D7
About the road to happiness, through love and charity, Why you'd think he's talking straight to you and me.
 
G A
Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose, In our streak-of-lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
C G C G A D D7
But just so we're reminded, of the ones who are held back, Up front there ought'a be a man in black.
 
G A
I wear it for the sick and lonely old, For the reckless ones, whose bad trip left them cold,
C G C G A D D7
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been, Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.
 
G A
I wear it for the thousands who have died, Believin' that the Lord was on their side!
C G C G A D D7
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died, Believin' that we all were on their side.
 
G A
Well, there's things that never will be right, I know, and Things need changin' ev'rywhere you go,
C G C G A D D7
But 'til we start to make a move, to make a few things right, You'll never see me wear a suit of white.
 
G A
Oh, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day, and Tell the world that ev'rything's OK!
C G C G A D7 G
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back, 'Til things are brighter, I'm the man in black.
