Dem trying to cut down dem young tree
Don't want to see a future for me
But dem see I know, yeah
Jah prophesy fulfilling before we
One day a higher society
Will ease the sufferation of the poor I see
But all dem looking at the poor man crying
Saying thank God it's not me

Cuttin' it down, limb from limb
Rip it out at the roots
Cuttin' it down, limb from limb
Rip it out at the roots

No matter the colour, no, no matter the race
Oh dem young tree, dem young tree
Oh dem young tree
Man is born free, yeah, man is born free
Underneath the holy young tree, the young tree
Holy young tree

Well man is born free yeah, man is born free
That's the way it's got to be
And a woman born free, born free, so shall it be
But I have no fear, no fear at all
As them come upon I yard, dem yard, wa yard
I have no fear, no fear at all
As them come upon I yard, dem yard, wa yard

Saying goodbye to you warmonger country
No more will you see I in
And with a clean and a pure in heart
I will nurse back to health
This failing young tree

And then we will be free again
Just like the way it used to be
For, grass to grow on, planting our own seed

Cuttin' it down, limb from limb
Rip it out at the roots

Man is born free, no man is born free, yeah
Oh dem young tree, dem young tree
Holy was the young tree
No matter the colour, no, no matter the race
Oh dem young tree, dem young tree
Holy was the young tree
