Bob Marley Duppy Conqueror Lyrics

Last updated: 10/09/2011 11:00:00 AM

Yes me friend, me friend
We deh 'pon street again
yes me friend, me good friend
Dem SET ME free again

the bars could not hold me
force could not control me
they tried to keep me down
but Jah put I around

yes I've been accused, many times
and wrongly abused now
but through the powers of the Most-I
they've got to turn me loose

dont try to COLD ME UP on this bridge now
I' ve got to reach Mt. Zion
so if you a BULLBUCKA, let me tell you this
i'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

yes me friend, me good frend
we deh'pon street again
yes me friend me good friend
dem say we free again

dont try to COLD ME UP on this bridge now
ive got to reach Mt. Zion
so if you a BULLBUCKA, let me tell you this
i'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

yes me friend
dem say we free again
yes me friend
dem set deh street again

CORRECT LYRICS:
Yes me friend,
We de a street again
yes me friend, me good friend
Dem say we're free again

the bars could not hold me
force could not control me, now
they tried to keep me down
but Jah put I around

yes I've been accused, many a times
and wrongly abused now
but through the powers of the most-high
they've got to turn me loose

dont try to COLD ME UP on this bridge now
I' ve got to reach Mt. Zion, the highest region
so if you're a bull-bucker, let me tell you this
i'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

yes me friend, me good friend
we de a street again
yes me friend me good friend
dem say we're free again

dont try to COLD ME UP on this bridge now
ive got to reach Mt. Zion - the highest region
so if you a bull-bucker, let me tell you this
i'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

yes me friend
dem say we free again
yes me friend
dem set de a street again

Explanation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/18/07

Let me explain this:

The version listed in the web page is for the Burning version, the one wich seems to be in a differente way is the one of the Songs of Freedon Disc 1 version.

Greetings



Regarding the previous post | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/14/07

Dude, go back and listen to Burnin'. I think you'll find these lyrics are just about correct. There are still a couple of flaws, but the stuff you are talking about must have come from a later version that you have heard.



not good | Reviewer: glen roberts | 2/21/07
