About Bob Marley

Robert Nesta Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter, musician and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim, blending mostly reggae, ska and rocksteady in his compositions. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee "Scratch" Perry.

[verse 1]
          Am        Dm          Am
    This morning I woke up in a curfew;
Am      Dm          E
    Oh God, I was a prisoner, too - yeah!
Am                 Dm             Am
    Could not recognize the faces standing over me;
Am               Dm                  E
    They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality. Eh!

Am            Dm                   Am
    How many rivers do we have to cross,
Am            Dm               E
    Before we can talk to the boss? Eh!
Am           Dm             Am
    All of we got, it seems we have lost;
Am                Dm              E
    We must have really paid the cost. (That's why we gonna be)


[chorus 1]
     Am            Dm       Am                  Am
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight (Say we gonna burn and loot)
     Am            Dm       Am
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight (One more thing)
     Am            Dm       Am
    Burnin' all pollution tonight (Oh, yeah, yeah)
     Am           Dm       Am
    Burnin' all illusion tonight.
    Oh, stop them!


[verse 2]
Am              Dm           Am
    Give me the food and let me grow
Am            Dm           E
    Let the Roots Man take a blow.
Am            Dm                   Am
    All them drugs gonna make you slow now
Am               Dm            E
    It's not the music of the ghetto. Eh!

[chorus 2]
     Am             Dm       Am
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (Who can stop the tears?)
     Am             Dm       Am
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (We've been suffering these long, long-a years!)
     Am             Dm       Am
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (Will you say cheer?)
     Am             Dm       Am
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (But where?)


[verse 2]
Am              Dm           Am
    Give me the food and let me grow
Am          Dm              E
    Let the roots man take a blow. (I must say –)
Am                      Dm        Am
    All them, all them drugs gonna make you slow
Am               Dm               E
    It's not the music from the ghetto.   (We gonna be)

[chorus 1]
     Am            Dm       Am
    burning and a-looting tonight (To survive, yeah!)
     Am            Dm       Am
    Burning and a-looting tonight (Save your baby lives)
     Am            Dm       Am
    Burning all pollution tonight (Pollution, yeah, yeah!)
     Am           Dm       Am
    Burning all illusion tonight (Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord!)

[Outro - Fade out]
     Am             Dm       Am
    Burning and a-looting tonight
     Am             Dm       Am
