No, woman, no cry x4
say - say. Say i remember when a we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown,
Oba - obaserving the hypocrites - yeah!
As they would,
Mingle with the good people we meet, yeah!
Good friends we have, oh, good friends we've lost
Along the way, yeah!
In this great future, you can't forget your past;
So dry your tears, i seh.
No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry. eh, yeah!
Here little darlin', don't shed no tears:
No, woman, no cry. eh!
Seh - seh - said i remembaa when we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown, yeah!
And then georgie would make the fire lights,
As it was, logwood burnin' through the nights, ahh
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge,
Of which i'll share with you, ooo
My feet is my only carriage
And so i've got to push on through.
But, while i'm gone,
Everything's gonna be all right! x7
So no, woman, no cry;
No, no woman,
No, woman, no cry
O ma little sister, don't shed no tears;
No, woman, no cry.
