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 tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler,
The gambler,
The back biter
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 the midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee talkin' to the man from Galilee
He spoke to me in the voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said, "Bing go do My will!"

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler,
The gambler,
The back biter
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
But as sure as God made black and white
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 tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler,
The gambler,
The back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down

Full Sound
The full instrumentation takes nothing away and adds whole new depth to the song. Fine work.

Thanks

My memory ..
.. isn't good enough to make a direct comparison with the earlier version, so this is just based on what I'm hearing as I listen. Lovely production - nice placement across the sound stage - the fuller percussion works really well, and I like the light and shade you've used, as well as the overall build. A small nit is that your excellent vocals are a tad too far back in the mix for me. Great playing, and love the BicŪ.
Cheers,
Neil

Agreed
Thanks for the insightful comment, Neil - and for helping me come around about the vox level. I was on the fence (and didn't do the car stereo test - I know...I know...)

Your vocals...
...remind me of John McCutcheon here...

I think Neil might have a point...another dB or two up in the vocal might help it project a bit more...

I love those occasional bass notes...

Ed
dreadmon said 3564 days ago (July 23rd, 2007)
Thank you!
Thanks Ed! That's another vote for the vox up a notch. I tried something new in building the mix this time around and as a result, I had a much clearer soundstage - so I got pretty confident with the vocal sat down low, but it's definitely sort of blending in with the wallpaper at some points - I didn't ride the virtual faders enough. (Where can I find cheap automation software?) Glad you liked the bass - I didn't want it keep groovin' constantly, just come in like Taurus pedals every now and again to punch the tone. I'm looking forward to getting Logic one of these days, but it's been fun trying to push GB.

Great re-recording
I really like the additional instrumentation. i also like your build- it's very effectively done. The spread of instruments was excellent, as already mentioned. I like the driving tempo you have through the whole thing, as set by the uneffected dulcimer.

Thank you!
Thanks, KristyJo! I was holding my breath to see if my gut was going to be right with this one. Honestly - I almost went overboard with the build and ended up tearing down and starting from square one. Thanks for all of your input!

Thanks so much! I'm very, very happy that the sound is true through your small speakers - I didn't do the "speaker tour", so I'm just trusting my Teac wanna-be monitors. Good to hear that it's working for you - thanks again!

wave those mini bics high
Well Bing, you definately convinced me God's gonna cut him down.

A lot of force and drive from the instruments to your vocals, which, by the way sound fine and upfront through my headphones. I guess they all vary in indiscreet ways.

Like Neil
My memory can't bring up the details of the previous version... but I can tell you this... this production is complete in every criteria... all the elements that make up a great recording for me.. soundscape/mix.. passionate vocal... mastery of instruments.. authenticity...

you're firing on all cylinders here my friend

Like this one too. Fuller sounding though, like what was said, the vocals volume got lower a bit. Still think the slide guitar sound ,(unless that was you doing on the dulcimer), could be a little richer or fuller sounding.

All and all, thought you brought fire to this one.

The countryside can hear you a'comin round the bend, and they are a tremblin in their boots, worried about which one of them are gonna get cut down for carryin' on. Their Judgement day is upon them.

How's that for a scene creation.

Thanks again for the good tune.

OK, not wacky
As you said!

Restraint, however, has brought out the best in this. A full sound but not overbearing. I think you got it just about right.

Too excellent Bro Bing!
Really great and authentic take on a trad theme. This is my favorite tune of yours now. Your vocal is dead on. The sound of your dulcimer is righteous clean. And the outro on this is fantastic!

Be well!
dreadmon said 3561 days ago (July 26th, 2007)
Thanks, man!
Yours is the first comment on the outro - I'm glad you like it! I wasn't entirely sure about it and definitely dialed it down a few notches - it was sounding kind of glam at one point. LOL! Thanks for listening and commenting!

Gulp... Is this about me?
I really like this. You sing with the intensity this song needs... I know that if I were sitting in a church or gospel meeting listening to this, I'd be squirming, wondering maybe I'm going be cut down soon... or maybe I already was (that would explain the years 1992-98, I think).

Very powerful stuff here.

I have an idea for a third treatment, where a fuller, heavier sound kicks in at some point, maybe for the "my goodness gracious" verse, with big drums, bass, guitars. It's probably cliche'd but I think it would definitely work well. I don't know that it would be any better than this version though; just differeent. This version is great, and once again I am hugely impressed by you.

dreadmon said 3561 days ago (July 26th, 2007)
Wow!
Thanks, Clark! Now, you've got me wondering about the year 1992. : )

You aren't far off from my thinking on another treatment - I was quite torn between keeping it in a somewhat traditional vein (slave-stomp) and really putting some southern fire and brimstone rock into it. Before all is said and done - that's the treatment that will end up on-stage.

And don't worry - when I sing this tune, I always feel like the finger is pointing inwards! Thanks again for listening --

Rousing Production
Very good all-around job, Bing.

The song itself reminds me of some early 60s folk in both content and presentation (a good thing to my ears).

Aside from a minor vocal timing glitch following: "...will be brought to the light..." and a subtle instrumental mis-step at the somewhat abrupt end of the song, it's a solid performance.

What I "heard" that was not in this production was some BIG drums on counterbeats, providing some percussive exclamation to the piece... but that's just a matter of subjective production "taste."

Overall, I enjoyed this production very much. ;)

Thank you!
Hey Joe -

Thanks for listening! Yeah, that vocal thing was bugging me, so I did tweak it a bit since the posting. Regarding the last instrumental glitch, I'm not sure what you're referring to, but I did let the groove continue on purpose. Thank you so much for commenting; very insightful!

Good job -- i am downloading. Now, off to hear version one...

jamorama said 3561 days ago (July 26th, 2007)
I like the earlier rendition better....
to my ear, that one is in a better key, your voice sounds way better and though this one is slicker, it's not as appealing. I also like the orchestration choices there, and the SIMPLICITY.

dreadmon said 3560 days ago (July 27th, 2007)
Indeed
Thanks for listening! I totally hear you on the key - the dulcimer was tuned to itself the first time, much better for my voice, but lousy for trying to get other instruments in tune. By taking it about 30 cents higher, there's a big difference there. Great ear for noticing! Also, I do agree about the more simple arrangement - as has been mentioned here, this song could go many ways, very simple to rockin' out - I'd like to think that this version is sort of a compromise between two very different worlds. Thanks again for checking this out!

Awesome
I love that song...heard it only once when a friend sang it with his guitar. What a wonderful surprise to come across it again on your site! And what an outstanding interpretation. The instrumentation is fresh, modern and still feels raw and genuine. Excellent work structuring and layering. Could almost not recognize your voice here - sounds good as usual but has a different kind of intensity. I rarely download songs here, but this one is playing on iTunes with "repeat this song forever" turned on.

"Repeat this song forever" - that is awesome, thank you so much! I just love this song. I can't put my finger on what's different about the vocals, besides the fact that the melody is probably one of the most simple I've worked with and it also has a sort of talky approach, much closer to my speaking voice. I had a lightbulb moment while recording - perhaps this is more my range. Have you heard the Moby version? I'm still looking for it - am anxious to see what he does with it - I'm sure it's wild! Thanks again!

Like Both Versions 1 and 2!!
Bing,
This (IMO) is one of your best posts. This re-record
re-do, is very, very good. The lyrics and vocals are
superb, I do agree the vocals are just a hair or two
behind the music but for a person like me( who is a non singer) I really can not fairly ding you on something
I could not do myself. All in all a fab song

Your new song is absolutely one of the most beautiful recordings I%u2019ve heard in many years.
It is mesmerizing. Your voice is strong- compelling- beautiful- like you%u2019re singing from the depths of your soul. The rendition is near perfection. You have flat got it going on! And we will wait- patiently, if necessary- for more!!! Bring %u2018em on!
