Earth & Stone - Jail House Set Me Free (aka Jah Will Cut You Down)

Jail house set me free!
I wanna go home..
My mammy and daddy, I'm longing to see
Even my brethrens, that used to gather round
Used to sing in one harmony, yeah!

I was down, in deep meditation
Singing songs of love, oh yeah!
When you come and say, I'll be going to station
My poor heart burns..
Babylon, took me away, and flagged me so bad
Tears fell from my eyes, I know, know
You'll have to pay the bills, yes!
Jah is gonna whip your soul, I know, I know, know
He'll soon cut you down, yes!
And no more you will be around, I say, I say

This is a message to all Babylonians, telling them:
That they should not keep
I and I bredrin in locked up places, yunno

I was down, in deep meditation
Singing songs of love, oh yeah!
When you come and say, I'll be going to station
My poor heart burns..
Babylon, took me away, and flagged me so bad
Tears fell from my eyes, I know, know
You'll have to pay the bills, yes!
Jah is gonna whip your soul, I know, I know, know
He'll soon cut you down, yes!
And no more you will be around, I say, I say..
