Corner Stone
Bob Marley Lyrics


The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a sing it brother
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone

You're a builder, baby
Here I am, a stone
Don't you pick and refuse me
'Cause the things people refuse
Are the things they should choose
Do you hear me?
Hear what I say!

Stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a tell me why
The stone that the builder refuse, yeah!
Will always be the head cornerstone

Here I am baby
I am, a builder's stone!
Don't you pick and refuse me, listen
The tings people refuse
Are the things they should use
Do you hear me
Hear what I say

The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone

The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone that dem builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone

The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone
The stone

Bob Marley was rejected by his white Marley family because he was half black/half white.
Not a 100% white Marley as they all were.
There for, he made this song. I love it but it also hurts.
His halfsister listened to this song with an interviewer and said "where are the white Marley's now? Nobody remembers who they were, what they had and what they did.
(He went there to ask for a car to bring his music around. They used a bicycle but became famous in whole Jamaica. Radio stations didn't play the Wailers. Those radios stations belonged to record labels and weren't allowed to play their music. So they needed to borrow a car to spread their music)
They refused him a car because they refused HIM as a family member.
His half sister said "how true this song is. The world only knows the black Marleys and there are a lot of black Marleys because of him".
Bob became and still is 'the head cornerstone' of the Marleys.
His white second Marley cousin knew this song, but didn't know the what Marley was telling here. About the car and how the white Marley's refused him because he was a half breed. Black/white. (Don't refuse me)
Man, how that had to hurt Bob.
I bet, that the white Marley's will tell that BOB is family/related after he became that famous and adored around the whole world by black and white ppl. Bob didn't make himself. He was human, had red blood and a heart where the white Marleys stepped on very hard.
ONE LOVE ❣ love you BOB Marley.

it's awesome to learn that the song was written about Bob being the stone, and his father was the builder who refused Bob Marley when he was a child, and now Bob is the head Cornerstone of the family and not his father, awesome

It's scripture. The head cornerstone is Jesus Christ. It was prophecy, fulfilled on the cross when the people he came from refused him and killed him. Let those who have the ears to hear, hear.

Marley, like I, and so many others can feel this when you are rejected by the ones you love.

Bob Marley's songs are filled with praise to the Almighty.

Let whoever has eyes to see, see it, and who ever has eyes to hear, hear it.

It’s a direct verse from the Bible psalm 118:22 as are many of his songs like give thanks and praises etc

He went to borrow money from uncle who had business and they said no that's why wrote song

Askya Lumumba

Bob took complete ownership of the last name " Marley ". This man was a visionary.

People don’t understand how Much of an Icon This man was , The Revolution He Built through his music , his passion his spiritual power he shared with humanity , and humanity continues to lead down the wrong path even after all our prophets who came along. Come togetherness humanity. Oneness Rastafari. ❤️
