(This morning I woke up like this)
sometimes it's nice to hear it again

 This music video, directed by Tony Kaye, was made for this version in late 2006, three years after Cash's death

"God's Gonna Cut You Down", also known as "Run On" and "Run On for a Long Time", is a traditional folk song from the jubilee tradition which has been recorded by numerous artists representing a variety of genres. The song has, over time, been modified to fit the boundaries of diverse genres like country, folk, gospel and techno. The most beautifoul versions for me: Johnny Cash's version, maybe my favoritre, the most intimate and best reflects the meaning of the text. Elvis's version is more ironic and it's closer to a gospel/rock..amazing! (The king) Moby's version "Run On" as the second single from his studio album Play (1999) blues, folk, Trip hop, electronica, it's a mix of house music and instrumental music. last but not least the soul version by Odetta..of course!
