Redemptionsong – Bob Marley (1980)

1) Old pirates yes they rob I,
sold I to the merchant ships
minutes after they took I,
from them bottem-less pits
but my hand was made strong,
by the hands of the almighty
We forward to this generation,
triumphantly

Refrein: Won’t you help to sing,
these songs of freedom
For all I’ve ever had:
redemption songs,
redemption songs

2) Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
none but ourselves can free our mind!
Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘cause non of them can’t 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 fullfill the book

Refrein: Won’t you help to sing,
these songs of freedom
For all I’ve ever had:
redemption songs,
redemption songs

Tussenspel

2) Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery (etc)

Refrein: Won’t you help to sing,
these songs of freedom
For all I’ve ever had:
redemption songs,
redemption songs
