Rancid – The Harder They Come lyrics

Well, they tell me there's a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
No one ever seems to hear you cry
But as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all (Ohh, ohh, ohh)
I said the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all
I said the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
But they think they're gonna have the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done
But as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
I said the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all (Ohh, ohh, ohh)
I said the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Break it down!
Well, I try to do the things that I want
Cause when you're dead, you know that you can't
I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave
So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share right of what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all (Ohh, ohh, ohh)
Ooh, the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I said the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all (Yeah, yeah-ah-ah)
I said the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all
Break it down!
