The Harder They Come
(Jimmy Cliff)
Transcribed by: Kevin Teel


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 of 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 trying to keep me down
Trying 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 of 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

And I 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
Than living as a puppet or a slave

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of 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
