Soundtracks From The Harder They Come


Hubby and I were in a nostalgic mood last night, and we ended up watching The Harder They Come again. What a great movie — after all, the message still seems to be as urgent as 40 years ago.

So here comes a tribute to the Reggae man, Jimmy Cliff. I agree 100% “… I’d rather be a free (wo)man in my grave/ Than living as a puppet or a slave.”

The Harder They Come
Jimmy Cliff

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

Chorus:
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

Chorus

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

Enjoy
