No Woman, No Cry Lyrics

by Bob Marley & The Wailers

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
Ob- observing all the hypocrites
as they'd mingle with the good people we'd meet
Good friends we had and good friends we lost
along the way
in this bright future
you can't forget your past
so dry your tears I say.
no woman no cry
no woman no cry

Hey little darling 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 a fire light
as it was logwood burning through the night
and we would cook cornmeal porridge
of which I'd share with you
my feet is my only carriage
so I've got to push on through
but while I'm gone (I mean it)
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
ev'rything's gonna be alright
No woman no cry
No woman no cry
Oh my little sister don't shed no tears
no woman no cry
