Redemption Song - Lied über Freiheit und Erlösung

Bob Marley hat meine Jugendjahre musikalisch sehr geprägt. Unvergessen bleiben seine Klassiker "No Woman No Cry", "One Love" oder "Buffalo Soldier". Leider verstarb er 1981, ohne dass ich ihn live auf der Bühne erleben konnte.

Von seinen Liedern gefällt mir besonders Redemption Song, ein gefühlsstarker Song über Freiheit und Erlösung. Hier die wundervolle Interprätation von Elisa in ihrem Live-Konzert:

 
 

Und das ist der Text zum Lied:

Old pirates yes they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I from the
Bottom less pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the almighty
We forward in this generation triumphantly
Won't you help to sing another song of freedom
Cause all I ever had redemption songs, redemption songs
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
Won't you help to sing, another song of freedom
Cause all I ever had, redemption songs, redemption songs, redemption songs
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
Yes some say it's just part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
Won't you help to sing, another song of freedom
Cause all I ever had, redemption songs
All I ever had, redemption songs
These songs of freedom, songs of freedom
