Tosh, Peter - Sinner Man Lyrics




Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
All along the day

You run to the sea, the sea was a'boiling
You run to the sea, the sea was a'boiling
You run to the sea, the sea was a'boiling
All along the day

You run to the rock, the rock was a'melting
You run to the rock, the rock was a'melting
You run to the rock, the rock was a'melting
All along the day

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?

You run to the Lord, "Lord, won't you hide me?"
You run to the Lord, "Lord, won't you hide me?"
You run to the Lord, "Lord, won't you hide me?"
All along the day

The Lord say, "sinner man, you should be praying"
The Lord say, "sinner man, you should be praying"
The Lord say, "sinner man, you should be praying"
All along the day

You run to the devil, the devil was a'waiting
You run to the devil, the devil was a'waiting
You run to the devil, the devil was a'waiting
All along the day

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
All along the day

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?

Tosh, Peter Sinner Man Comments
  1. Derek B

    Amazing, I thought I was just going to find downpressor man, glad there is a Peter Tosh version of Sinnerman. Peter Tosh is one hell of a fighter and musician for and of justice.

  2. Victor Antonio Contreras Barrios

    This isn't Tosh, these are The Wailers

  3. Gerard Nijboer

    does anyone know why all versions have different lyrics? nina simone, The Seekers, Three Dog Night, John P. Kee, 16 Horsepower, Soda & His Million Piece Band, Nina and Frederik, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Lauryn Hill and 1960s Spanish folk group "Nuestro pequeño mundo. all have different texts..

  4. Tr3ze

    not is peter, is bob marley & the waylers

    Sandra Matizez

    yes it's the Wailers, but Peter Tosh is singing here

  5. Sendo Realista Com Gente Bosta

    man, this is amazing! Peter really put his soul in this one. there are no musician nowadays making this kind of soulfull and very inspirational music. today everything seems so robotic. thanks Peter, you were the man! i think the original Wailers are singing in this one; Bob, Bunny and Peter

  6. Karim Karam

    sakura sena nurse angel ...... thank me later

  7. MrGreenhornet

    Yeah, the chillout version of nina simone' version... :-)

  8. Daniel Hebert

    Such a beautiful and deep song

  9. Alan Blondy

    O gigante!

  10. flyingrabbit76

    Pete Tosh is for everyone. How music's politics can be relatable to and for anyone feeling oppression regardless of skin color or nationality

  11. Mentes Livres

    Nina Simone, check out her version of this song

    Kátia C

    @Arthur Silva it´s amazing her version! And Pete is great too. A versão dela é vibrante, no meio das lutas pelos direitos civis...

    Sandra Matizez

    I prefer this cover, slow and warm, but this by Nina Simone is amazing too :)

  12. Ostry018

    ive heard that only black people listen to P tosh, thats not true

    witchcerridwen

    thats not true.im white and i love to listen to him.

  13. stigma rest room

    Actually this song is "The Wailing Wailers" version, not a soloist Peter Tosh

  14. Christian Offensive

    sinner man ignoring the message of the song.... oh sinner man, you should be praying

    Christian Offensive

    *Oh my, oh Negro Negro Negro*

    Yes. How may I assist thee my lord?

    *darkness is the cause of all sins, as an unexistent energy*

    It is wickedness, that reigns supreme in the hearts of men, that is the cause of all sins. Light and Darkness is just an analogy. Where there is no light, there is darkness. If there is no light within you, then there is nothing but darkness. For God is the Light, and if thee is godless and ungodly then there is no light within you. Bottom-line = WICKED

    *Let us not all fall into the shame and impurity of the negros, can we try?*

    What shame? And what impurity? Last time I checked, all men and all races are shameful, disgraceful and impure. So, let us not be deceived by our pride and arrogance, for all men are wicked. Can we try that for change?

    +Rezur Rexion Not sure if racist.
