Duppy Conqueror
Bob Marley Lyrics


Yes, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again
Yes, me friend, me friend
Me deh 'pon street again

The bars could not hold me
Force could not control me now
They try to keep me down
But God put me around. Yeah!
Yes, I've been accused
Wrongly abused now
But through the powers of the Most High
They've got to turn me loose

Don't try to cold me up on this bridge, now
I've got to reach Mount Zion
The highest region
If you a bull-bucka
Let me tell you that
I'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

Yes, me friend, me good friend
Dem set me free again, mm
Yes, me friend
Dem turn me loose again

Don't try to cold me up on this bridge, now
I've got to reach Mount Zion
The highest region
If you a bull-bucka
Let me tell you
I'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend, me friend
We deh a street again
Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again

Don't try to show off
Fi make you friend dem laugh, what a la-la!
For i will cut you off
And i will take the last straw

I'm crying, yes me friend
We deh a street again
Yes me friend, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again

The bars could not hold me
Force could not control me now

Si, mi amigo, mi amigo
Ellos dicen que somos libres otra vez
Si, mi amigo,
Estamos en la calle otra vez


Las barras no pudieron retenerme
La fuerza no pudo controlarme
Ellos trataron de someterme
Pero jah me sacó adelante
Si, he sido acusado,
Incorrectamente acusado
Pero por los poderes del más alto
Tuvieron que soltarme



No traten de enfriarme en este puente
Tengo que alcanzar el monte Sión,
La región más alta
Si usted se considera un deforestador
Dejeme decirle esto
Yo soy un conquistador de fantasmas

Si, mi amigo, mi amigo
Ellos dicen que somos libres otra vez
Si, mi amigo, mi buen amigo
Ellos me soltaron otra vez

No traten de enfriarme en este puente
Tengo que alcanzar el monte Sión,
La región más alta
Si usted se considera un deforestador
Dejeme decirle esto
Yo soy un conquistador de fantasmas
Conquistador

Si mi amigo
Mi amigo mi amigo mi amigo
Estamos en la calle otra vez
Si mi amigo
Mi amigo mi amigo
Me soltaron otra vez

No trates de lucirte
Antes de que hagas a tus amigos reir... What a la la
Porque yo te voy a talar
Y me llevaré la última rama
Yo estoy llorando!
Si mi amigo
Estamos en la calle otra vez
Si mi amigo mi amigo
Ellos me soltaron otra vez.

Ninjah

Oui mon ami,
Ils m’ont encore libéré
Oui mon ami, mon bon ami
Me revoici dans la rue
Les barreaux n’ont pas pu m’arrêter
La force n’a pas pu me contrôler
Ils ont essayé de me mater
Mais Jah m’a délivré. Yeah!
Oui, j’ai été faussement accusé
Et abusé plusieurs fois
Mais par les pouvoirs du Très-Haut
Ils ont dû me relâcher
Ne m’empêchez pas de traverser ce pont, maintenant
Je dois me rendre sur le mont Sion,
L’endroit le plus haut
Alors si vous chevauchez les taureaux
Laissez-moi vous dire que moi, je dompte les fantômes !
Oui mon ami, mon bon ami
Nous revoici dans la rue
Oui mon ami, mon bon ami
Ils nous ont encore libérés
Alors ne m’empêchez pas de traverser ce pont, maintenant
Je dois me rendre sur le mont Sion,
L’endroit le plus haut
Alors si vous chevauchez les taureaux
Laissez-moi vous dire ceci : je dompte les fantômes !
Oui mon ami,
Ils nous ont libérés à nouveau
Oui mon ami,
Nous revoici dans la rue

Fell in love with this version of this song back in '85 when a friend played his best of The Wailers album for me.

Adaine Ingram

I listen this masterpiece on repeat until it soak through me like water soaking a sponge. Leaving me with watery eyes and a irie feeling. Bob Marley live forever.

Lana Ranger

So eloquently put. Sounds like you could have written some songs for him.
