The Harder They Come - Jimmy Cliff

Well, they tell me of a pie up in the sky

 

Waiting for me when I die

 

But between the day you're born

and when you die

 

They never seem to hear even your cry

 

So as sure as the sun will shine

I'm gonna get my share now, what's mine

 

And then the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Ooh, the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Well, the oppressors are

tryin' to keep me down

 

Tryin' to drive me underground

 

And they think

that they have got the battle won

 

I say forgive them Lord,

they know not what they've done

 

'Cause as sure as the sun will shine

 

I'm gonna get my share now, what's mine

 

And then the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Ooh, the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Oh yeah yeah, well, oh yeah,

 

oh yeah, oh yeah

 

But I'll keep on fighting

for the things I want

 

Though I know

that when you're dead you can't

 

But I'd rather be a free man in my grave

 

Then living as a puppet or a slave

 

So as sure as the sun will shine

I'm gonna get my share right now,

what's mine

 

And then the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Ooh, the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Hey, the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

What are say now

What are say now

 

What are say now

What are say one time

Hey, the harder they come,

 

the harder they'll fall, one and all

 

Hey, the harder they come,

the harder they'll fall, one and all
