Belshazzar Written and recorded by Johnny Cash
G Well the bible tells us about a man D7 G Who ruled Babylon and all its land
Around the city he built a wall D7 G And declared that Babylon would never fall
He had concubines and wives D7 G He called his Babylon Paradise
On his throne he drank and ate D7 G But for Belshazzar it was gettin' late
D7 G For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting D7 His kingdom was divided couldn't stand G He was weighed in the balance and found wanting D7 G His houses were built upon the sand
Well the people feast and drank their wine D7 G And praised the false gods of his time
All holy things they scorned and mocked D7 G But suddenly all their mocking stopped
For on the wall there appeared a hand D7 G Nothin' else there was no man
In blood the hand began to write D7 G And Belshazzar couldn't hide his fright
Well no one around could understand D7 G What was written by the mystic hand
Belshazzar tried but couldn't find D7 G A man who could give him peace of mind
But Daniel the prophet a man of God D7 G He saw the writing on the wall in blood
Belshazzar asked him what it said D7 G And Daniel turned to the wall and read
Repeat #3 My friend you're weighed…
