"Tight Rope" as written by and David Robert Hinds....
Deliver me oh my father
From the downpressers
Set me free
Dem a trying to keep I down
But I will always prosper
Dem a trying to keep I down
But I will always ... WO


Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul
A poor man's life don't cut no ice
With so many mouths to feed
And if my word ain't good enough
just take a look and see

Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul
Like a drowning man who clutches a straw
Might think he's got no chance
The will of JAH can pull him through
he's a helping hand, you got that

Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul
From the valley of dry bones I have risen
and I've got to make a change
hang my head in the clouds with conviction
Ain't no stopping now
Deliver me oh my father

Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul
Just can't keep me down
Just can't keep me down
Just can't keep me down
Really just can't keep me

Got me walking on a tightrope
Never never say die
Reach the mountain high!
