Belshazzar

Johnny Cash

Well the bible tells us about a man who ruled Babylon and all its land
Around the city he built a wall and declared that Babylon would never fall
He had concubines and wives he called his Babylon Paradise
On his throne he drank and ate but for Belshazah it was gettin' late
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 his houses were built upon the sand
[ guitar ]
Well the people feasted and drank their wine and praised the false gods of his time
All holy things they scorned and mocked but suddenly all their mocking stopped
For on the wall there appeared a hand nothing else there was no man
In blood the hand began to write and Belshazah couldn't hide his fright
For he was weighed in the balance and found
Wanting his houses were built upon the sand
[ guitar ]
Well no one around could understand what was written by the mystic hand
Belshazah tried but couldn't find a man who could give him peace of mind
But Daniel the prophet a man of God he saw the writing on the wall in blood
Belshazah asked him what it said and Daniel turned to the wall and read
My friend you're weighed in the balance and found wanting
Your kingdom is divided it can't stand
You're weighed in the balance and found
Wanting your houses are built upon the sand
