Set The Captives Free

Gregory Isaacs

I hear birds up in the tree
Singing songs of melody

I see wickeds standing by
I've seen mothers wipe their eyes
But let me tell you
Set the captives free
That's the only thing that really bothers me
Set the captives free
Cause what is to be has got to be

I've seen bredrin licking coke
Serving time, living more
While the wicked passing by
I've seen mothers wipe their eyes,
Ooh wee
Jah Jah
Jah Jah
Thou art my saviour Jah Jah
