Redemption Song - Bob Marley

 

Strophe) 

Old Pirates, yes, they rob I 

Sold I to the merchant ships 

minutes after they took I from the bottomless pit 

But my hand was made strong 

By the hand of the Almighty 

We forward in this generation triumphantly

 

 

Refrain) 

won´t you help to sind these songs of freedom 

´Cause all I ever had, redemption songs

redemption songs 

 

Strophe) 

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery 

None but ourselves can free our minds 

Have no fear for atomic energy

`Cause none of them can stop the time 

How long shall they kill our prophets 

While we stand aside and look 

Yes, some say it´s just a part of it 

We´ve got to fulfill the book 

 

Refrain) 

Won´t you help to sing these songs of freedom 

`Cause all I ever had, redemption songs 

redemption songs 

 

Strophe) 

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery 

None but ourselves can free our minds 

Have no fear for atomic energy 

`Cause none of them can stop the time 

How long shall they kill our prophets 

While we stand aside and look 

Yes, some say it´s just a part of it 

We´ve got to fulfill the book 

 

Refrain) 

Won´t you help to sing these songs of freedom 

`Cause all I ever had, redemption songs 

redemption songs 

These songs of freedom 

These songs of freedom 

All I ever have......
