The Great Judgment Morning
Recorded by Roy Acuff                [3/4 time]
Written by Leander L. Pickett

G                                 C        
I dreamed that the great judgment morning
    G                          D7     
Had dawned and the trumpet had blown
  G                            C        
I dreamed that all nations had gathered
   G          D7             G      
To judgment before the white throne
From the throne came a bright shining angel
       G                         D7   
And he stood on the land and the sea
    G                             C      
And swore with his hand raised to heaven
     G           D7        G  
That time was no longer to be
And oh what weeping and wailing
       G                       D7    
As the lost were told of their fate
     G                           C         
They cried for the rocks and the mountains
     G                D7               G    
They prayed but their prayers were too late
The rich man was there but his money
    G                   D7
Had melted and vanished away
  G                         C
A pauper stood there in the judgment
    G              D7      G
His debts were too many to pay
The great man was there but his greatness
     G                       D7
When death came was left far behind
    G                     C
The angel that opened the records
   G            D7              G
No trace of his greatness could find
Repeat #3                
The widow was there and the orphan
    G                          D7
God heard and remembered their cries
   G                   C
No sorrow in heaven forever
    G             D7               G
God wiped all the tears from their eyes
The gambler was there and the drunkard
    G                          D7
And they who had sold them the drink
     G                        C
With people who gave them the license
  G              D7       G
Together in hell they did sink
Repeat #3   
The mortal man to the judgment
    G                            D7
But self righteousness would not do
    G                         C 
For the men who had crucified Jesus
    G             D7         G 
Had passed off as mortal men too
And the souls that had put off salvation
    G                             D7
Not tonight I'll get saved by and by
   G                    C 
No time now to think of religion
   G             D7            G 
At last they had found time to die
Repeat #3
