Toots & Maytals - Never Get Weary

I was down in the valley for a very long time,
But I never get weary, yet.
I was down in the valley for a very long time,
But I never get weary, yet.

I was born and raised,
In a little old shack with my poor family.
I was born and raised,
In a little old shack with my poor family.
With my poor family.
I was from before, Christopher Columbus.
And I was born before, the Arawak Indians.
Trod in creation, before this nation.
I'll always remember, I can't forget.

I was walking on the shore,
And they took me in the ship,
And they threw me overboard.

And I swam right out,
Of the belly of the whale,
And I never get weary, yet.

Say they put me in jail,
And I didn't do no wrong,
And I never get weary, yet,
Never get weary, yet.

Say they put me in jail,
And I didn't get no bail,
Ad I never get weary, yet,
Never get weary, yet.

I know, I was from before,
Christopher Columbus.
And I was born before, the Arawak Indians.
Trod in creation, before this nation.
I'll always remember, I can't forget.
Oh yeah, ah-ah!

(..)

I was down in the valley for a very long time,
But I never get weary, yet.
I was down in the vallery for a very long time,
But I never get weary, yet.

I was born and raised,
In a little old shack with my poor family.
I was born and raised,
In a little old shack with my poor family.
With my poor family.
Yes, I was from before, Christopher Columbus.
And I was born before, the Arawak Indians.
Trod in creation, before this nation.
I'll always remember, I can't forget.
Whoah! Ahh!
