Rock Stone

Stephen Marley

Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
I say, rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow

Hear de man say
R-R-Rock stone was my pillow
Couldna find place fi sleep
Pot dem empty, we haffi find food fi eat
Everyday we terrorize by soldier and police
When the thing dem a strum and the thing dem a beat
From dem a play cowboy and Indian, and Chief
From the first, to the third
Straight up to seven street
One thing in a we mind haffe trample the beast
And make it in a life and inherit as the meek
Self employed, cannot get lay off
Mount a work mi have, can't even get a day off
Who did waan fi stop mi now
Dem find out seh dem way off, alright

So mi seh one by one, one by one
One by one we stepping out ah Babylon
And then one by one, one by one
Hail the King Selassie I, the Conquering Lion

Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
I say, rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow

Help us Jah, take us from the slum
Neva giveup matta what, strictly fire burn
Hail Rasta, take us from the slum
Neva giveup matta what, King Selassie I blessing come
Sufferation is a thing, could be no harder time
Got to widen your views, got to broaden your mind
What we face in the ghetto, nowhere else can you find
Hunger, poverty, a system so unkind
As a matter of fact there is an aftershock
When cold ground was my bed and my pillow was a rock
Try to make it through the system
All the doors were locked
Yet nothing beats a try and so I ain't go stop
Mount a time they write a book on you
A set amount a crap they would a put on you
Yet when you in the dirt they wouldn't look on you
They would only scorn and wanna wipe they foot on you

So open up, Zion door, Ethiopia Africa for sure
Liberate the poor, the poor, ehhh
Mi nah lie, true mi hail Selassie I dem waah fi war I
Read mi Bible, turn to peace and praise 'Tafari
Goodbye Babylon goodbye, goodbye
Open up Zion door, Mount Zion Ethiopia for sure
Children of Israel, children of Israel, eh

Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
I say, rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow

Hear me now
Jah man me cool, nuh stumble like you
Walk 'pon di street, me nuh gwaan for fool
Arrive at the dance, di mic a my tool
Eat 'pon table, sit inna stool
Me black me brown, me brown no black
Ribs an me chest, me spine an' me back
Wait till you hear, when dis riddim drop
Head, you toe, yuh body a rock
From mi 'pon di mic, Steve Marley ah chat
Firm and strong, doh step 'pon the lot
The peaceful, righteous, Rastaman
Rod of correction, inna him hand
Preachin' out to man and woman
Give riches to King Solomon

Now, bass come out, and treble a top
Cap an no buck, an nuh buck a no cap
Sweetest singer, was Sugar Minott
Man a come in and ah give me a shot
Dracula tun inna Vampire bat
When him see sun, him cyah take that
Eye dem dark, fi use contact
I 'pon the mic, Raggamuffin a chat
Fi mi head dread, me head it no plat
Nuh fraid ah no mouse, nuh fraid ah no rat
Pray to Jah, me never will stop
We hot no cold, wah cold nuh hot
Live in a house, no live in a flat
Up inna Zion, thee righteous will top
Jah blow breeze, the devil cannot

Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
I say, rock stone was my pillow
Rock stone was my pillow
