i just got the peter tosh retrospective called "the toughest"... man, if he wasn't under bob's shadow, he would probably be the greatest reggae artist ever.

 

but the two of them together is absolute magic. "400 years" from catch a fire is brilliant, as is "stop that train."

 

but the most undersung genius is Family Man. his bass lines are like poetry.

Who needs to go to church when you have Bob. :cool::cool:

 

So much trouble in the world

So much trouble in the world

 

Bless my eyes this morning

Jah sun is on the rise once again

The way Earthly things are going

Anything can happen

 

You see men sailing on their ego trips

Blast off on their space ship

Million miles from reality

No care for you, no care for me

 

So much trouble in the world now

So much trouble in the world now

All you got to do is give a little

Give a little, give a little

One more time YE-A-H! YE-AH!

 

So you think you have found the solution

But it's just another illusion

So before you check out your tide

Don't leave another cornerstone

Standing there behind

We've got to face the day

Ooh-we come what may

We the street people talking

We the people struggling

 

Now they are sitting on a time bomb

Now I know the time has come

What goes on up is coming on down

Goes around and comes around

 

So much trouble in the world

So much trouble in the world

So much trouble in the world

There is so much trouble

There is so much trouble

There is so much trouble

There is so much trouble in the world

There is so much trouble in the world

amen brother.

 

for my two cents, nobody catches the conflict of spirit and mundane like bob.

 

trey anastasio was quoted saying bob marley is the most important songwriter of the century. i'm inclined to agree.

Oh yeah!! I'm with you man. Here's another jem.

:):cool:

 

This morning I woke up in a curfew

Oh god, I was a prisoner too

Could not recognise the faces standing over me

They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality

 

How many rivers do we have to cross

Before we can talk to the boss

All that we got seems lost

We must have really paid the cost

 

(That's why we gonna be)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(Say we gonna burn and loot)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(One more thing)

Burnin all pollution tonight

(Oh yeah, yeah)

Burning all illusions tonight

 

Oh stop them

 

Give me the food and let me grow

Let the roots man take a blow

All them drugs gonna make you slow now

It's not the music of the ghetto

 

Weeping and a-wailing tonight

(Ooh can't stop the tears)

Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight

(We've been suffering all these long, long years)

Weeping and a-wailing tonight

 

Give me the food and let me grow

Let the roots man take a blow

All them drugs gonna make you slow now

It's not the music of the ghetto

 

We gonna be burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(To survive, yeah)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(Save your babies lives)

Burning all pollution tonight

Burning all illusions tonight

 

Burnin and lootin tonight

Burnin and lootin tonight
