trench town lyrics – bob marley

(scoop, scoop, scoop, scoo-doo;
scoop, scoop wa-doo.)
up a cane river to wash my dread;
upon a rock i rest my head.
there i vision through the seas of oppression, oh-oo-wo!
don’t make my life a prison.

we come from trench town, trench town (trenchtown) –
most of them come from trench town.
we free the people with music (sweet music);
can we free the people with music (sweet music)?
can we free our people with music? – with music,
with music, oh music!

oh-y, my head,
in desolate places we’ll find our bread,
and everyone see what’s taking place, oh-oo-wo! –
another page in history.

we come from trench town,
come from trench town;
we come from trench town.
lord we free the people with music (sweet music);
we free the people with music (sweet music);
we free our people with music,
with music, oh music (oh music)!

they say it’s hard to speak;
they feel so strong to say we are weak;
but through the eyes the love of our people, oh-oo-wo!
they’ve got to repay.

we come from (trenchtown) trench town;
we come from (trenchtown) trench town;
trench – trench town (trenchtown).
they say, “can anything good come out of trench town?”
(trench – trenchtown)
that’s what they say, (trenchtown); (trench – trenchtown)
say (trench – trenchtown) we’re the underprivileged people,
so (trenchtown) they keep us in chains:
“pay (trench – trenchtown) – pay – pay tribute to -” (trenchtown).
we come from (trench – trenchtown);
we come from (trench – trenchtown);
just because we come from trench town.
not because we come from trench town;
just because we come from (trenchtown). [fadeout]
