August Town

Duane Stephenson

A word from the wise: don't try to make life on your own
Remember that Jah Jah's by your side, for I was a soul who was lost
And my life was in dismay, for among evil forces in which I played yeah
Guns and ammunition were my chosen way of life
With God's fearing people I chose to strive
For all of the lives that are taken, they can never be replaced
But still Jah Jah chose to remember my face

Though I never lived like he wanted
Am still mindful of what he taught me
So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees
Cause father you rescued me
I've got the scars to show, I barely made it along life's road
Cause when my life got dark, you was the only spark
You were the light at the end of the road

When I was a young boy growing up in August Town
We ate from the same pot, we were ithrens all around
From corner to colour and corner, from rockers to jungle turf tire
Rising to dreadhieghts and river all around, and then the football ground became a battle field and my life seem so surreal
People were falling all around, but Jah helped me to stand my ground
Only Jah, Only Jah, could have helped me to stand my ground

Though I never lived like he wanted
I was mindful of what he taught me
So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees
Cause father you rescued me, and I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road
Cause when my life got dark, you were the only spark
The light at the end of the road

Never lived to please him, I never lived like I should
Father you rescued me

I've lived and I've learned, I have made mistakes along the way
Now I beg for forgiveness, each day as I try to pray
So take it from me son, you can change the world today
And am living proof, living proof that crime doesn't pay

For I never lived like he wanted
I was mindful of what he taught me
So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees
Cause father you rescued me
I got the scars to show, I barely made it along life's road
Cause when my life got dark, you were the only spark
You were the light at the end of the road
