my lyricsbox
get ringtone
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
You know, they never seem to hear even your cry
So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what is mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall
One and all
The harder they come
The harder they fall
One and all
And the oppressors are trying to track me down
They're 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
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
This song is from the album "Steppin' Out: The Very Best Of Joe Jackson", "Ultimate Collection", "Collected", "Live At Rockpalast", "Universal Masters Collection", "Joe Jackson Story" and "Tonight & Forever".
