Jerry Garcia - The Harder They Come

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
They never seem to hear even your cry

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

Well, the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drag me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say, "Forgive them, Lord, they know not what they've done"

'Cause as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

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

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share right now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all

Yeah, the harder they come the harder they fall, one and all
Hey, the harder they come, harder they'll fall, one and all
