No Woman, No Cry - (For Willowtree)

-













No Woman, No Cry
Bob Marley
No woman, no cry, No woman, no cry
No woman, no cry, No woman, no cry

Said I remember when we used to sit,
In the government yard in Trenchtown
Observing the hypocrites,
And they would mingle with the good people we'd meet,
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 say

No woman, no cry, No woman, no cry
Here little darlin', don't shed no tears
No woman, no cry
Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown,
And then Georgie would make the fire light
And it was, logwood burnin' through the night,
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I'll share with you,
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! Everything's gonna be all right!
Everything's gonna be all right, Everything's gonna be all right!
Everything's gonna be all right-a! Everything's gonna be all right!
Everything's gonna be all right, yeah! Everything's gonna be all right!

So, woman no cry, No woman, no cry
O' my little sister, don't 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 light
And it was, logwood burnin' through the night,
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I'll share with you
My feet is my only carriage
So I've got to push on through
But while I'm gone,

No woman, no cry, No woman, no cry
Oh my little darlin', say don't shed no tears
Little darlin', don't shed no tears
No woman, no cry
Little sister, don't shed no tears
No woman, no cry

You're very welcome! I hoped that might cheer you up a little! I love that song; you can just imagine being there, 'logwood burnin' though the night'. That just seemed the right song at the right time- for you!
