Redemption Song
Bob Marley & The Wailers
Album: Uprising

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.

Won't you help to sing
these songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs.
Redemption songs.

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?
Some say it's just a part of it
we've got to fulfill the book.

Won't you help to sing
these songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs.
Redemption songs.
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
none but ourselves can free our mind.
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.

Won't you help to sing
these songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs.
All I ever had:
Redemption songs.
These songs of freedom.
Songs of freedom.
