Redemption Roots

No matter what the people say this here man has earned his stay a man of freedom speak a man in times rarely weak but i did not know him through though i wished that dream came true born a rugged man he had seen e'ery land and i wished that i could have been there once just to meet him and listen once but the days they come too fast and we are here reminiscing of the past Redemption Songs we have so many our friends that have come and gone all left their redemption song Joe why did you so softly leave leaving us to weep and grieve but you taught so well through your stories tell shadows long on the ground reggae, rock, and hip-hop sound come what may in this here life i know you had a loving wife and of friends you had them all to the end beyond that wall we loved you so damn much your words had that touch and now we've come to the end and now we are lost without you friend so listen we to your works this long your lasting redemption song *To a great man, Joe Strummer* Rudeboy John
