The Harder They Come
Jimmy Cliff Lyrics


Oh yeah, oh yeah
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, what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all

Well, the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive 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, 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

Ooh, yeah, ooh yeah
Whoa, yeah, oh yeah

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 now, 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

Hey, the harder they come
The harder they'll fall one and all
What I say, now? what I say, now?
All

All
What I say, now? what I say? one time
the harder they come
Harder they'll fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all

The Harder They Come
Jimmy Cliff

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, what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all

Well, the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive 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, what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
Harder they 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, what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all

Lyrics

Oh yeah, Oh! Oh right
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 
The harder they'll fall, one and all

Well the oppressors are trying to keep me down 
Trying to drive 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 
The 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, what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they fall, one and all
Ooh, the harder they come
Harder they fall, one and all

Quão Mais Forte Eles Vierem

Bem, eles me falam de um lugar no céu
Esperando por mim quando eu morrer
Mas entre o dia em que nasces e quando morreres
Eles nunca parecem ouvir, até mesmo quando gritas

Tão certo quanto o sol vai brilhar
Eu vou terei a minha parte agora, o que é meu
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um

Bem, os opressores estão tentando manter-me no chão
Tentando me fazer underground
E eles pensam que eles têm a batalha vencida
Eu digo perdoa-lhes Senhor, eles não sabem o que fazem

Tão certo quanto o sol vai brilhar
Eu vou terei a minha parte agora, o que é meu
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um

E eu continuo lutando pelas coisas que eu quero
Embora eu saiba que quando você está morto você não pode
Mas eu prefiro ser um homem livre em minha sepultura
Do que viver como um fantoche ou um escravo

Tão certo quanto o sol vai brilhar
Eu vou terei a minha parte agora, o que é meu
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um

Quão Mais Forte Eles Vierem

Bem, eles falam de um lugar pra mim no céu
Esperando por mim quando eu morrer
Mas entre o dia em que nasces e quando morreres
Eles nunca parecem ouvir, até mesmo quando gritas

Tão certo quanto o sol vai brilhar
Eu terei a minha parte agora, o que é meu
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um
E quanto mais forte eles vierem
Mais forte eles caem, todos e cada um

I am really saddened that I had to delete racist comments for the first time since uploading this track 11 years ago.

We are dealing with complex issues regarding power around the world that social media has reduced into polarised 100 character shit slinging matches where there is no discourse.

Every comment that labels a murdered man as a criminal, or calls for the death of all police just further divides us and over simplifies key issues that deserve better.

Listen, appreciate, empathise, talk and we will move forward, otherwise we will continue to be puppets and slaves.

Ignorance no more ,no less👊 Why can't people look beyond the skin colour of another human being?? I would love to just know many of these people who are racists, who would put up their horrible resistance 2wards a Dr from anywhere in this world where our shades of skin are different , but this doctor/Surgeon is gonna save you or your familys life, but you and your Ignorance puts up a wall???... Seriously get a real grip of your life and accept we as "Human Beings " are supposed to help each other, and it doesn't matter if your ,white,black ,brown ,yellow ,pink or multi fucking coloured 🙏 we're all in this game of life together x1💙 x

God gives us a brain to think a heart to live and a desire to love and be loved whoever the person may be,

Andre Welsh

@A Pa thank you for that piece of information. I appreciate it. That certainly helped...

@Andre Welsh and the DSM 5 which lists approximately 200 mental disorders. The DSM 5th edition is the document/rulebook the hospitals, schools, and government use to determine what is covered by insurance and who gets paid for treating the ailment. Hatred and belligerence are signs of a soul in turmoil.

As a man who struggled with depression and madness along the life, trying to keep myself righteous while dreaming about liberty and social justice for everyone, i must say this song helped me endure some dark episodes of my life. They came hard and harder they fell. thank you Jimmy Cliff, and thank you Jamaica for all the reggae.
