Bob Marley Lyrics

Buffalo Soldier

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta:

There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of america,

Stolen from africa, brought to america,

Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

I mean it, when I analyze the stench -

To me it makes a lot of sense:

How the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo soldier,

And he was taken from africa, brought to america,

Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

Said he was a buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta -

Buffalo soldier in the heart of america.

If you know your history,

Then you would know where you coming from,

Then you wouldn't have to ask me,

Who the 'eck do I think I am.

I'm just a buffalo soldier in the heart of america,

Stolen from africa, brought to america,

Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival;

Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for america.


Dreadie, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,

Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,

Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Buffalo soldier troddin' through the land, wo-ho-ooh!

Said he wanna ran, then you wanna hand,

Troddin' through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea.

Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for america;

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta,

Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival;

Driven from the mainland to the heart of the caribbean.

Singing, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,

Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,

Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Troddin' through san juan in the arms of america;

Troddin' through jamaica, a buffalo soldier# -

Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival:

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta.

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,

Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,

Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

No Woman No Cry

Said said

Said I remember when we used to sit

In the government yard in Trenchtown

Oba, ob-serving the hypocrites

As they would mingle with the good people we meet

Good friends we have had, oh good friends we've lost along the way

In this bright future you can't forget your past

So dry your tears I say

No woman, no cry

No woman, no cry

Oh my Little sister, don't she'd no tears

No woman, no cry

Said, said, said I remember when we used to sit

In the government yard in Trenchtown

And then Georgie would make the fire light

Log wood burnin' through the night

Then we would cook corn meal porridge

Of which I'll share with you

My feet is my only carriage

So I've got to push on through

But while I'm gone...

Everything's gonna be alright

Ev'rything's gonna be alright

Ev'rything's gonna be alright

As the would mingle with the good people we meet

Good friends we have, oh, good friends we've lost

Along the way

Then we would cook cornmeal porridge

Of which I'll share with you

My fear is my only courage

So I've got to push on thru

Oh, while I'm gone

Everything 's gonna be alright, everything 's gonna be alright

Everything 's gonna be alright, everything 's gonna be alright
