Oh twinkling we
Can't see the right roads when the streets are big
That old slave mill might grind slow

But it grinds fine
 African Herbsman why linger on
Just concentrate 'cause heaven lives on
 Retire slave men will look with a scorn 
With a transplanted heart
That's how quick they have to part
That's how quick 

The remembrance of today 
Sad feeling of tomorrow oh yeah
 African herbsman seize your time
 Taking illusion to the edge of my mind
 Taking loses down through my life
Down through my life yes
That's how quick 
That's how quick 

Do they part yes they part
In remembrance of today oh yeah
 African Herbsman why linger on
Just concentrate 'cause heaven lives on
 Retired slave men will look with a scorn 
With a transplanted heart 'cause that's how quick 
That's how quick 

The remembrance of today sad feeling of tomorrow 
Lead me oh Lord, Lord, Lord I pray
 African Herbsman (repeat 5 times)
Oh twinkling we
Can't see the road when the streets are big
That old slave mill might grind slow
But it grinds fine

 African Herbsman seize your time
 Taking illusion on the edge of my mind
 Taking loses down through their lives 
Down throught heir lives 
The African Herbsman [Repeat: x3]
