"Sitting In Limbo" as written by Jimmy Cliff and Guillermo Bright-plummer....
Sitting here in limbo
But I know it won't be long
Sitting here in limbo
Like a bird without a song

Well, they're
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

Sitting here in limbo
Waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo
Got some time to search my soul

Well, they're
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

I don't know where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen

Tried my hand
At love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo
Waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo
Knowing that I have to go

Well, they're
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
I can't say where life will lead me
But I know where I've been

Tried my hand
At love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo
Waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo
Knowing that I have to go

Well, they're
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo
Sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo
Limbo, limbo
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)

Don't know if it's got to be so
Don't know if it's got to be so (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo))
Sitting in limbo, sitting here in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

But I know we won't belong now
I know we won't belong (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)
Hey, yeah (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

Ah ha ha ha ha (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)
Ah ah ah ah ha (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

Sitting in limbo, limbo, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

    General CommentI assume Limbo here as meaning an intermediate place where some people are sent to while they are waiting for a 'judgment'. Thus the legendary Jimmy Cliff is expressing his faith in himself for beating all those people who have chased or betrayed him and, as a result of that, he was forced to put himself in a 'Limbo' for reflecting upon his own life until the right moment that his unshakable faith definitively releases him from all this suffering.

    My OpinionOne of the sweetest songs I have ever heard . JGB used to play it often in the 70s . My favorite version is with Nicky Hopkins on piano on the Don't Let Go CD . Great piano work by Hopkins on this version .
