No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry

Said, said, said, I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
Oba - obaserving the 'ypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have, oh, good friends we've lost
Along the way
In this great future, you can't forget your past
So dry your tears, I seh

No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
'Ere, little darlin', don't shed no tears
No, woman, no cry

Said, said, said, I remember when-a we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
And then Georgie would make the fire lights
As it was logwood burnin' through the nights
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I'll share with you
My feet is my only carriage
So I've got to push on through
But while I'm gone, I mean

Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
I said, everything's gonna be all right-a
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right, now
Everything's gonna be all right

So, woman, no cry
No, no, woman, woman, no cry
Woman, little sister, don't shed no tears
No, woman, no cry

I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
And then Georgie would make the fire lights
As it was logwood burnin' through the nights
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I'll share with you
My feet is my only carriage
So I've got to push on through
But while I'm gone

No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
Woman, little darlin', say don't shed no tears
No, woman, no cry
Eh!  (Little darlin', don't shed no tears
No, woman, no cry
Little sister, don't shed no tears
No, woman, no cry)
