Bob Marley and the Wailers

Bob Marley and the Wailers were a Jamaican reggae band led by Bob Marley. It developed from the earlier ska vocal group, the Wailers, created by Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963.

Yes, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again
Yes, me friend, me friend
Me deh 'pon street again 

The bars could not hold me;
Force could not control me now. 
They try to keep me down
But God put me around. Yeah! 

Yes, I've been accused
Wrongly abused now
But through the powers of the Most High 
They've got to turn me loose 

So don't try to cold me up on this bridge, now. 
I've got to reach Mount Zion
The highest region. 
So if you a bull-bucka,
Let me tell you this: 
I'm a duppy conqueror - conqueror.

Yes, me friend, me good friend
Dem set me free again, mm
Yes, me friend
Dem turn me loose again 

Don't try to show off
You make your friend dem laugh
For I will cut you off
And I will take the laughs off
I'm crying

Yes, me friend
We deh a street again
Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again 

Bars could not hold me
