The Harder They Come
by Willie Nelson



Well, they tell me of a pie in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But, between the day you're born and when you die
They never even seem to hear 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
The harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all

Well, the officers 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
And the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all

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
And the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all

And the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all
