Strugglin' Man

Lyrics: Jimmy Cliff
Music: Jimmy Cliff

Played by Jerry with Merle Saunders in 1979 in "Reconstruction" and subsequently also with the Jerry Garcia Band.

Every man has a right to live
Love is all that we have to give
Together we struggle by our will to survive
Then together we fight just to stay alive

Chorus
Strugglin' man has got to move
Strugglin' man, no time to lose
I'm a strugglin' man
And I've got to move on
(Strugglin' man, strugglin' man)

As the sun lights the day and the moon lights the night
Strugglin' man keeps reaching for the higher heights
So we plan for tomorrow as we live for today
Like a flower we bloom and then later, fade away

[chorus]
