Buffalo Soldier

Buffalo Soldier long poem

Uploaded by Mario Vitale

If you know your history
Then you will know where I’m coming from
Jam to Jah
Rhasta enlighten man
Out in the bush where fish is biting
Yet we are hiding for self discovery
All of life is one big mystery
Just like Robert Nesta Marley & Peter Tosh
We can all come together love each other with peace
Smoke a spliff
Gonjah if your fond of
Take it all in a new way to begin
Your just a buffalo soldier
Dread La Rhasta
Fight on arrival
Fighting for survival
Burning Spear, Aswad & Bunny Wailer
Do me a favor
Tighteous tones that savor
Sold them from Africa brought to America
Live long Ziggy and the Melody Makers
All the other group are real cheap fakers
