No Woman No Cry

No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
Said said said: I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown,
Oba obaserving the íypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet.
Good friends we have, oh, good friends weíve lost
Along the way.
In this great future, you canít forget your past
So dry your tears, I seh.
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
íere, little darliní, donít shed no tears:
No, woman, no cry
Said said said: I remember when-a we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown.
And then georgie would make the fire lights,
As it was logwood burniní through the nights.
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge,
Of which Iíll share with you;
My feet is my only carriage,
So Iíve got to push on through.
But while Iím gone, I mean:
Everythingís gonna be all right!
Everythingís gonna be all right!
Everythingís gonna be all right!
Everythingís gonna be all right!
I said, everythingís gonna be all right-a!
Everythingís gonna be all right!
Everythingís gonna be all right, now!
Everythingís gonna be all right!
So, woman, no cry
No - no, woman - woman, no cry
Woman, little sister, donít shed no tears
No, woman, no cry
I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown.
And then georgie would make the fire lights,
As it was logwood burniní through the nights.
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge,
Of which Iíll share with you
My feet is my only carriage,
So Iíve got to push on through.
But while Iím gone:
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
Woman, little darliní, say donít shed no tears
No, woman, no cry
Eh! (little darliní, donít shed no tears!
No, woman, no cry
Little sister, donít shed no tears!
No, woman, no cry.)
