Buffalo Soldier, dreadlock Rasta
 There was a Buffalo Soldier
In the heart of America  Stolen from Africa, brought to America  Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival 

I mean it, when I analyze these things 
To me, it makes a lot of sense 
How the dreadlock Rasta was the Buffalo Soldier
And he was taken from Africa, brought to America  Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival 

Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, dreadlock Rasta
 Buffalo Soldier, in the heart of America 

If you know your history 
Then you would know where you coming from
Then you wouldn't have to ask me
Who the heck do I think I am

I'm just a Buffalo Soldier
In the heart of America  Stolen from Africa, brought to America 
Said he was fighting on arrival  Fighting for survival 
Said he was a Buffalo Soldier
Win the war for America 

Said he was a, woe yoy yoy, woe woe yoy yoy
Woe yoy yoy yo, yo yo woy yo, woe yoy yoy

Woe yoe yoe, woe woe yoe yoe
Woe yoe yoe yo, yo yo woe yo woe yo yoe

 Buffalo Soldier, troddin' through the land woo ooh
Said he wanna ran, then you wanna hand
Troddin' through the land, yea, yea

Said he was a Buffalo Soldier
Win the war for America  Buffalo Soldier, dreadlock Rasta
 Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival  Driven from the mainland 
To the heart of the Caribbean 

Singing, woe yoy yoy, woe woe yoy yoy
Woe yoy yoy yo, yo yo woy yo woy yo yoy

Woy yoy yoy, woy woy yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yo, yo yo woe yo woe yo yoy

Troddin' through San Juan
In the arms of America 
Troddin' through Jamaica, a Buffalo Soldier
 Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival  Buffalo Soldier, dreadlock Rasta

Woe yoy yoy, woy woy yoy yoy
Woe yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy woy yoy woy yoy yoy
