Blackheart Man
Bunny Wailer Lyrics


Tikya the Blackheart Man, children
I say, don't go near him
Tikya the Blackheart Man children
For even lions fear him (repeat)

Growing in a neighbourhood for such along time
That is filled with fear
I can't go here, can't go there
And I ain't supposed to go anywhere
When I ask my Mom if she could let me go out and play
She said be careful of the stranger
Giving candies to children
And then take them away

He lives in the gullies of the city
He's the Blackheart Man (The blackheart Man)

Even in the lonely parts of the country
He's the Blackheart Man, Blackheart Man
Got no friend, no home, no family
He's the Blackheart 'Man, The Blackheart Man
He is famed to live just like the Gypsy
He's the Blackheart 'Man, The Blackheart Man

Growing and learning and gathering, for myself a little more
Experience jumping over the fence
Curiousity has brought me yes it's brought me, a little common-sense
Trodding the road of life, I've come to this one conclusion
That everything is equal under the sun, all that is createdby JAH mighty hand
And he said knock and it shall be opened
Seek and Ye shall find that wisdom is found in the simplest of places,
In the nick of time, knock and it shall be opened
Seek and ye shall find that wisdom is found in the simplest of places, in the nick of
Time and now I trod the same road of aflictions just like the
Blackheart Man, just like the Blackheart Man
Getting my share of humiliation just like the Blackheart Man
Just like the Blackheart Man
You'll find me even in the prison of the dungeons
Just like the Blackheart Man, just like the the Blackheart Man
I even get blamed without a reason just like the Blackheart Man
Just like the Blackheart man yau

No cross, no crown, no sorrow, no trial and crosses In-a-I way
But the hotter the battle is the sweeter JAH JAH victory
Ancient children use to say if you want good
Your nose got to run run run
How could the world go free, and let JAH bear the cross alone
And them that drink of the old wine hath no place for the new
For the new and the stones that are head of the corner are the
Same one that the builders refused
Now, it's the Blackheart Man, children
Who've become the wonder of the city (rep).

For even lions fear him

Growing in a neighbourhood, for such along time
That is filled with fear
I can't go here, can't go there
And I ain't supposed to go anywhere (anywhere at all)
When I ask my mom if she could let me, go out and play
Like the children do
She said be careful of the stranger
Giving candies to children

He lives in the gullies of the city
He's the Blackheart Man ya (the blackheart Man)

Even in the lonely parts of the country
He's the Blackheart Man ya, Blackheart Man
He ain't got no friend, no home, no family

He is famed to live just like the Gypsy
He's the Blackheart Man, yeah

Growing and learning and gathering, for myself
A little more experience jumping over the fence
Curiousity has brought me, yes it's brought me, a little common-sense yeah
Trodding the road of life, I've come to, this one conclusion
That everything is equal under the sun
All that is created by Jah mighty hand, yeah
And he said knock and it shall be opened

Seek and ye shall find, wisdom is found in the simplest of places
In the nick of time

I even get blamed without a reason, just like the Blackheart Man
Just like the Blackheart man yau

No cross, no crown, no sorrow, no laughter, trial and crosses In-a-I way
But the hotter the battle, is the sweeter, Jah Jah victory, oh weh
Ancient children use to say if you want good
Your nose got to run run run
How could the world go free, and let Jah bear the cross alone
And them that drink of the old wine, hath no place, for the new
For the new, and the stones that are head of the corner are the same ones
That the builders refused
Hear me when I say now
It's the Blackheart Man, children
