(cliff)Well, they tell me of a pie up in the skyWaiting for me when I dieBut between the day you’re born and when you dieYou know, they never seem to hear even your cryChorus:So as sure as the sun will shineI’m gonna get my share now what is mineAnd then the harder they comeThe harder they fallOne and allThe harder they comeThe harder they fallOne and allAnd the oppressors are trying to track me downThey’re trying to drive me undergroundAnd they think that they have got the battle wonI say, forgive them lord, they know not what they’ve doneAnd I keep on fighting for the things I wantThough I know that when you’re dead you can’tBut I’d rather be a free man in my graveThan living as a puppet or a slave
