about

To coincide with the release of Australian film, ‘Darklands’ on Stan, ‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’ is out now.

I was so humbled to play a tiny part in the EPIC new Australian motion picture 📽, 'Darklands', streaming from Sept 1st on STAN, directed by Scott Major, starring Nadine Garner and Samantha Cain. ⚡️

I was invited to record a version of the traditional song, 'God's Gonna Cut You Down' for the soundtrack.

I recorded the track in my loungeroom, AKA, 'Lady Luck Studios' during lockdown, and my wonderful friend Rachel Snow added the divine violin parts, all the way from her cute German abode. Mad Props to my beautiful mate, Rodrigo Enrique Bustos for helping put the special shine on my mix, I learned so much! Love you guys. 💜

lyrics

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later, God'll cut you down

Go and tell that long-tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the backbiter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Well my goodness gracious, let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee
Talkin' to the man from Galilee
He spoke to me in his voice so sweet
I thought that I heard the shuffle of angel's feet
He called my name, and my heart stood still
When He said, "John, go do My will!"

Go tell that long-tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the backbiter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later, God'll cut you down

Well, you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin' in the dark against your fellow man
As sure as God made black and white
What's done in the dark will be brought to the light
What's done in the dark will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later, God'll cut you down
Sooner or later, God'll cut you down

Go and tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the backbiter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
