Shasha Marley – Promised Land (A State Of Mind) lyrics

[Chorus:]
Am going to my promised land, would you like to come with me
Am going to my promised land, won't you love to come with me
Am going to my promised land, (Sensei Melvin Brown)
Won't you like to come with me
Am going to my promised land, (Nicoleta)
Won't you love to come with me

Promised Land is not Australia, Promised Land is not Europa
Promised Land is not America; Promised Land is a state of mind
I say the Promised Land is not the Philippines, Promised Land is not Bahamas
Promised Land is not Colombia; Promised Land is a state of mind
Oh, oh, oh, eh!

Chorus

What is this life if full of care
No time to stand and no time to stare
I say no time to stand in broad day light
And stare as long as sheep or cows
The days are coming when Jah will send a famine through the land
Not a famine of food nor thirst for water
But a famine of hearing the words of the most high God
The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few
Wuoh woh, men will stager from sea to sea
And wander from the North to the East
Searching for the Word of the most high God, oh gosh
I say people will travel round all over the whole wide world
Searching for the truth, but they will never find it

Cos the Promised Land is not in Africa, Promised Land is not Jamaica
Promised Land is not America; Promised Land is a state of mind
Promised Land is not in India; Promised Land is not in Russia
Promised Land is not Japan; Promised Land is a state of mind
Oh, oh, oh, eh!

Chorus

Promised land, Promised Land, Promised Land
Promised Land is a state of mind
Promised land, Promised Land, Promised Land
Promised Land is a state of mind
I say the Promised Land I'm talking about is not situated on Earth, yeah woah
Promised Land is a state of mind
