Bob Marley & The Wailers - Down Presser

Mercy gone and Judgement come
Mercy gone and Judgement come
Mercy gone and Judgement come
All along that day (sad day)

Downpressor man, where you gonna run to?
Tell me, downpressor man, where you gonna run to?
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to?
All along that day (along that day)

You run to the rocks, rocks will be melting, man
When you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting, so run
When you run to the rocks, rocks will be melting
All along that day (sad day for you)

Ohh, when you gonna run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
When you run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
Run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
All along that day (that day)

So, you gonna run to the Lord, oh, won't you hide me'?
Run to the Lord, Lord, won't you hide me'?
Run to the Lord, Lord, won't you hide me'?
All along that day (sad day for you, man)

Mercy gone and Judgement come
Mercy gone and Judgement come
I said, mercy gone and Judgement come
All along that day

I wouldn't like to be a flea, in your collar, man
Wouldn't like to be a flea, in your collar, man
I wouldn't like to be a flea, in your collar, man
All along that day

You can run but you can't hide (even in the gutter)
