Kris Kristofferson - Third World Warrior Lyrics




You can't defeat him - he's fighting for Freedom
That's all he wanted - that's all he needs
You'll never beat him with weapons and money
There ain't no chain as strong as the will to be free

Maybe his colors are driving you crazy
Call him a commie - maybe it's true
Lure him away from his home with your money
Give him the work that you don't want to do

You can't defeat him - he's fighting for Freedom
That's all he wanted - that's all he needs
You'll never beat him with weapons and money
There ain't no chain as strong as the will to be free

See how we honor the struggle for Freedom
They needed vision - we gave'em war
See who is patiently watching in silence
The crucification of El Salvador

You can't defeat him - he's fighting for Freedom
That's all he wanted - that's all he needs
You'll never beat him with weapons and money
There ain't no chain as strong as the will to be free

  1. Veronica Irving

    He is so sexy, passionate & handsome. So intelligent, with such insights, profoundability, & vast imagination. Oh how I love him! I feel it straight to my core!

  2. Kine Fjellheim

    Not any better song about the situation in the world theese days, 30 years after Kris wrote it :-(

    Deplorable Me

    Kine Fjellheim helt enig med deg der.

  3. Tommy Petersen

    it just hit me, Kris and the Borderlords were really really good! Why have I ignored this great film/concert for so long ? The guys good!

    Tommy Petersen love that dvd too. Received it the day before my first Kris concert ever... in Berlin, July 12, 2008. I was so excited that one of my very favourite songs of Kris, Shipwrecked in the 80's, was on it, although it was not on the track list...

    Tommy Petersen The last human to put words together as well as Kris Kristofferson was William Shakespear.

    What I love about this man is that I don't always agree with him ( I don't think he expects that either) but damn it all he makes me think about stuff! All signs of a great artist. Still don't think that he gets enough credit.

  8. Kine Fjellheim

    I still think this is one of his best political songs,, and I think all the Borderlords where present on this vid.. Great, miss some of them, but some of them are friends on FB.

  9. zeeras1

    wicked... love it

  10. Rich Peterson

    Poetry is alive and doing well as long as we have KK.

  11. Bluesbabesrv

    Nice seeing Stephen's face.
    I miss it :(

  12. Kine Fjellheim

    Tina, I loved it, and don`t let anyone give you shit, we love you and Kris and the other one is just trying to fuck it up.....I guess it is the " left politics" that get them pissed. AND I know american can`t like the language I use, therefore they use ##### or something to say it as if it gets better by diong so............;-(

  13. Melissa W

    Wow, Glen and Stephen were young guns! : )

  14. biggestkkfan

    @Lisangirls319 Lisa... Yes, it's Third world warrior, nr 12 on the Country Collection CD which means it's nr 2 on the Third World Warrior album... I must admit I confuse them at times, because the titles are so similar, but not this time :-) ... This one here is nr 6 on the DVD.

  15. Lisa Robbins

    Tina - This isn't Third World War... Third World war is a very dark, deeply disturbing song by Kristofferson.... #12 on the Breakthrough DVD... In the video it shows beatings and abused by the military; and a man getting run over by a train. "They call it communism because they don't know what it means... in the Third World War..."

  16. biggestkkfan

    @ThatReviewGuy1 thanks, it's nice to here some nice words ever now and then...

  17. Ryan king

    @biggestkkfan There will always be some moron who will go onto videos of artists they hate and dislike, it could always be worse (they could be flaming the comments XP) Don't let the bastards bring you down.

  18. biggestkkfan

    To this idiot that is thumbing down all the vids here - why don't you say what you don't like? If it's the vids, so tell me what you don't like about them - is it Kris's music at all or Kris Kristofferson in person, you should just not come here, because in this channel you'll ONLY find his nice stuff...

    "They needed vision, we gave them war..." already one viewer who didn't get the message...
