Listen while you read!
Songwriters: Jimmy Cliff
They tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
The day that you're born to when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

The officers are tryin' to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
Though they think they've got the battle won
I say, "Forgive them, Lord, they know not what they've done"

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

I'll keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead, you can't
Rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

As the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
The harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

They tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
The day that you're born to when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry

Then the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
The harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

The officers are tryin' to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
Though they think they've got the battle won
I say, "Forgive them, Lord, they know not what they've done"

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
The harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

And I'll keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead, you can't
I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
The harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

You know, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
Harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
The harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
