    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
    You know, they never seem to hear even your cry
    So as sure as the sun will shine
    I'm gonna get my share now what is mine
    And then the harder they come
    The harder they fall
    One and all
    The harder they come
    The harder they fall
    One and all
    And the oppressors are trying to track me down
    They're 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
    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
