Abyssinians – Jah Marley lyrics

Jah-ah-ah-ah Rastafari
Jah Jah Jah Jah Rastafari

Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley
Never forget your history
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
We won't forget your philosophy
Oh no, oh no

You told us how you shot the sheriff
So that it was self-defense
You said to the woman, no woman no cry
Cause Jah is standing by
You reminded the children that Jah Jah lives
Jah Jah lives within I and I
You said to get up and stand for our rights
And don't give up the fight
We won't give up the fight

Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley
Never forget your history
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
We won't forget your philosophy
Oh no, oh no

(Solo)

(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)

A prophet and a king was he
Proclaiming that men should be free
He told us of wars, rumors of wars
There'll be no peace until there's war
There'll be no peace until we're in war
Said a come a rock, this is Trenchtown rock
Whether you're a big fish, whether you're sprat
Cause everything, oh everything, everything will be alright
Cause everything, oh everything, everything will be alright

Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley
Never forget your history
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
We won't forget your philosophy
Oh no, oh no
Oh no...
Oh no, oh no
Oh no...
Oh no...
Oh no no no no no...

(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)

(Solo)

(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)

A prophet and a king was he
Proclaiming that men should be free
He told us of wars, rumors of wars
There'll be no peace until there's war
There'll be no peace until we're in war
Said a come a rock, this is Trenchtown rock
Whether you're a big fish, whether you're sprat
Cause everything, oh everything, everything will be alright
Cause everything, oh everything, everything will be alright

Jah Marley, woe-yoe-woe-yoe Jah Marley
Never forget your history
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
We won't forget your philosophy
Oh no, oh no
Oh no...
Oh no, oh no
Oh no...
Oh no...
Oh no no no no no...

(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)
(Jah Marley, oh-oh-oh Jah Marley)

Jah-ah-ah-ah Rastafari
Jah Jah Jah Jah Rastafari
