Jah Jah watch over I . . .
Evil, what you, what you sonna do? Yeh,
Jah Jah watch over I, yeh
Convicted and restricted still ...
Jah watch over I
Evil, what you, what you gonna do? Yeh
Jah Jah watch over I yeh
Physically defeated I,
I felt a stroke at the crack of dawn yeh,
And I paralyse my mind, my imagination, To my execution
To every anil of death I heard
I count the links to which I'm bound eh...
Down in the dungeon
I heard them constructing, the scaffold
Where . . . I'll be lynched aloft high
The thoughts of me to die
Rocking like a pendulum,
Anyway it does'nt matter cause
I'll be swinging to the rhythms of heh.
Dragged From my dwellings of
Where rats and beetles molest,
Romp with the hay.
I was off to a rope and man powered wild flight
I was : entering into another world and
Same time me deh - yah
Deh - weh - me - deh a hol-lar
A hollar, a hollar, a hollar,
Just a laugh heh.
Jah Jah watch over I
Evil, what you Sonna do. Jah Jah
