redemption song

Bob Marley

Oh pirates, yes they rob us 
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 
He fought in this generation 
Won't you help me sing 
These songs of freedom 
'cause all i ever had 
Redemption song 
emancipate yourself from mental slavery 
none but ourselves can free our minds 
have no fear for atomic energy 
'cause none o' them can stop the time 
how long will they kill our prophets 
while we stand around and look? 
some say it's just a part of it 
we got's to fulfill the book
