Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
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
Verse 11
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
Verse 12
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
Verse 13
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
