Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Arthur Smith

[E] They wouldn't [B7] bend
They held on to the will of [E] God so we are told
They wouldn't [B7] bow
They would not bow their knees to [E] Idols made of gold
They wouldn't [B7] burn
They were protected by the [E] Fourth Man in the fire
They wouldn't [A] bend
They wouldn't [B7] bow, they wouldn't [E] burn.

[E] Now the prophet Daniel tells about
Three [A] men who walked with God
[B7] Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
Before the wicked king they [E] stood
And the king commanded them bound and thrown
Into the [A] fiery furnace that day
But the [B7] fire was so hot that the men were slain
That forced them on their [E] way.


Now when the three were cast in and the king rose up
To witness this awful fate
He began to tremble at what he saw
In astonished tones he spake
Did we not cast three men bound
Into the midst of the fire
Well, Lo, I see four men unhurt
Unbound and walkin' down there;

There's Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
And the fiery coals they trod
But the form of the Fourth Man that I see
Is like the Son of God;


Change to F: Repeat Refrain:
