Written and recorded by Johnny Cash

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
His kingdom was divided couldn't stand
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

Repeat #3

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…
