Peter Tosh – Rumors Of War lyrics

Talkin' 'bout war
And rumors of war
Talkin' 'bout the coming of Jah
The time is not far

Oh my majesty
Please rescue me-e-e
Oh my majesty
Can't you rescue me-e-e

Rumors of war
Talkin' 'bout the coming of my father
The time is not far

God when I reach home
How happy I'll be
Knowing I am home
Where I am free

Talkin' 'bout war
And rumors of war
Talkin' bout the coming of the Negus
The time is not far

Oh my(3x) majesty
Can't you rescue me

When I look over creation
All I see is men's denomination
Causing complication
Amongst the younger generation

Rumors of war
Talkin' 'bout the coming of Jah Jah
The time is not far

When I reach that place
Gonna be happy and free
Knowing I'm in that land
And I've got my liberty

And I see war in a Beirut
War in a...
Syria, yeah
South Africa

Make sure your hands and heart are clean
So you can rally around the red, gold and green
