Hank Williams — THE PALE HORSE AND HIS RIDER lyrics

Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr. (with Audrey Williams)
Words and music by Johnny Bailes, Ervin Staggs, Zeke Clements
and Muriel Deason Wright (aka Kitty Wells)
[G] Listen poor sinner; you're driftin' away
>From the Dear Saviour; who's pleading to-[D] day
[G] What will you do; when the Saviour ain't [C] nigh
When the Pale [G] Horse and his [D] rider goes [G] by?
The time now ain't long; when the Saviour will come
Then you'll be judged; by the deeds you have done
On that judgement day; you'll weep and you'll cry
When the Pale Horse and his rider goes by?
When that trumpet sounds; on the sinners below
Not even the angels; in heaven will know
Then's when you'll wish; you had Jesus nigh
When the Pale Horse and his rider goes by?
Won't you redeem; your poor wicked soul
You can't pay your way; with Silver and Gold
If you're not saved; you'll be lost in the night
When the Pale Horse and his rider goes by?
