TIGHTROPE
Steel Pulse

Deliver me oh my father
From the down-pressor
Den trying to keep I down
But I will always conquer
Dem trying to keep I down
But I will always prosper

CHORUS
Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford no way to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon remains my foe
I will always have hope in my soul

A poor man's life don't cut no ice
With so many mouth's to feed yeah
And if my word ain't good enough
Just take a look and see

CHORUS
Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford no way to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon remains my foe
I will always 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

CHORUS
Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford no way to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon remains my foe
I will always have hope in my soul

From the valley of dry bones I have risen
And I've got to make a chance
Hang my head in the clouds with conviction
Ain't no stopping now
Deliver me oh my Father
From the down-pressor

CHORUS
Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford no way to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon remains my foe
I will always have hope in my soul

Just can't keep me down
Just can't keep me down
Just can't keep me
Really just can't keep me

CHORUS
Got me walking on a tightrope
Can't afford no way to buck my toe
And as long as Babylon remains my foe
I will always have hope in my soul
