Peter Tosh – Wanted Dread Or Alive lyrics

Said I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces
Said I'm wanted, dread & alive
Nowhere to hide
They are trying to find me

[Verse:]
Babylon charge I for ganja
Which I know couldn't do
How could one man Gang Jah
Must be an ape from the zoo

And I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces, yea
I been wanted, dread & alive
No place to hide
They are trying to find me

I've been accused for a shootin'
Jah know I never do
To put me in prison they are willing yea
So I've got to pull my way through

And I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces, yea
Said I'm wanted, dread & alive
With no, no place to hide
They are trying to find me

Yesterday was court day, yea
And I-Man forget to go
Today my name is in my papers
And next a warrant they will show

So I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces
Said I'm wanted, (yea) dread & alive
No place to hide
They are trying to find me

Now I've got just two guns
To protect myself from men
'Cause I've never done nothin' wrong
And I hate the dragon's den

And I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces
I'm always wanted, dread & alive
No place to hide
I know they are trying to find me

And I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces
Said I'm wanted, dread & alive
No place to hide

I been wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces...

    The oppressive government was so aggressive in a way that they wanted to kill or put mr tosh in jail, they considered mr tosh as a threat since he was insipiring/alerting and teaching about how evil and oppressive they are through music. Although mr tosh was not a politician but he was very influential among jamaican, he taugh black people them consciousness and pride of which the oppressive government(evil force) did not want at all.
