Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlock Rasta
When I analyze the stench
To me, it makes a lot of sense
How the Dreadlock Rasta was the Buffalo Soldier

Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Fight on arrival, fighting for survival

Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlock Rasta
Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlock Rasta
Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, win the war for America, yeah

If you know, if you know your history
Then you would know where you're coming from
Then you wouldn't have to ask me
Who the hell I think I am

I'm just a Buffalo Soldier
In the heart of America
I'm just a Buffalo Soldier
Win the war for America, yeah

(You are, you are)
(You are, you are)

Woe yoe yoe, woe woe yoe yoe (You are, you are)
Woe yoe yoe yo, yo yo woe yo, woe yoe yoe

Woe yoe yoe, woe woe yoe yoe (You are, you are)
Woe yoe yoe yo, yo yo woe yo, woe yoe yoe

When I analyze the stench
To me, it makes a lot of sense
How the Dreadlock Rasta was the Buffalo Soldier

Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Fight on arrival, fighting for survival

Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlock Rasta
Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, win the war for America, yeah

Fighting for survival
Woe yoe yoe, woe woe yoe yoe

Then you wouldn't have to ask me
Who the hell I think I am

Said I am a Buffalo Soldier, win the war for America

And I had to fight on arrival, fighting for survival yeah
Fight on arrival, fighting for survival
