Lyrics & Music by Ira Louvin, Charles Louvin and Buddy Bain.

Un classico brano della paura atomica, riproposto anche dagli Uncle Tupelo nel 1992...
Are you (are you) ready
For the great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your Savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry
When the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for the great atomic power?

Do you fear this man's invention
That they call atomic power
Are we all in great confusion
Do we know the time or hour
When a terrible explosion
May rain down upon our land
Meting horrible destruction
Blotting out the works of man

Are you (are you) ready
For the great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your Savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry
When the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for the great atomic power?

There is one way to escape it
Be prepared to meet the lord
Give your heart and soul to Jesus
He will be your shielding sword
He will surely stay beside you
And you'll never taste of death
For your soul will fly to safety
And eternal peace and rest

Are you (are you) ready
For the great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your Savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry
When the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for the great atomic power?

There's an army who can conquer
All the enemy's great band
It's the regiment of Christians
Guided by the Savior's hand
When the mushrooms of destruction
Fall in all it's fury great
God will surely save His children
From that awful awful fate

Are you (are you) ready
For the great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your Savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry
When the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for the great atomic power?

Versione (un po' meno fondamentalista!) degli Uncle Tupelo.
Dall'album "March 16–20, 1992".
Do you fear this man's invention
That they call atomic power?
Are we all in great confusion
Do we know the time or hour?

When a terrible explosion
May rain down upon our land
Leaving horrible destruction
Blotting out the works of man

Are you, are you ready
For that great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your Savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry
When the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for that great atomic power?

There is one way to escape
And be prepared to meet the Lord
When the mushroom of destruction falls
There is a shielding sword

He will surely stand beside you
And you'll never taste of death
For your soul will fly to safety
And eternal peace and rest

Are you, are you ready
For that great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry
When the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for that great atomic power?
