Martin Campbell - Hard On The Rootsman

I says the living is rough

Rootsman, I says the time is rough
Rootsman, I says these time is tough

Can't get no transportation
To take your produce to town
You'll be hitching a ride
You've got no money to hide
You can't sell your banana
You can't sell your cane
Potato can't sell
Your coco can't sell

So many man a travel in the open truck back
Now that's a fact
So many man haffi travel in the open truck back
Now that's a fact

Rootsman, don't you ever give up
Rootsman, don't you ever give up

(..)

Rootsman, I says these country is rough
Rootsman, I says these time is tough

Can't get no transportation
To take your produce to town
You'll be hitching a ride
You've got no money to hide
Your banana can't sell
I says your cane can't sell
Your potato can't sell
I say your coco can't sell

So many man haffi travel in the open truck back
Now that's a fact
So many man haffi travel in the open truck back
Now that's a fact

Rootsman, I say the living is rough, tough
Rootsman, I say the runnings are off, tough
The runnings are off
I says these country is tough, hey ah

Rootsman, I says these time is rough
And don't you ever give up
Don't you ever give up
Don't you ever give up
Don't you ever give up
