Old Marcus Garvey
Burning Spear Lyrics


No one remember old Marcus Garvey,
No one remember old Marcus Garvey

No one remember him, no one They been talking about Paul Bogle,
They been talking about William Goddon
They been talking about Norman Washington Manley,
Including Bustamante No one remember old Marcus Garvey,
No one remember old Marcus Garvey

Finest time John the Baptist's head were cut off
Put it away into a saucer,
Still disciples have oh Lord believe me,
Yes they stoneth him to death
No one remember old Marcus Garvey,
No one remember old Marcus Garvey

This day the right way
This day the right way
This day the right way
All us got todo is

A true black Lou I
A hatred scatter, even melt before the fire light go out
No one remember old Marcus Garvey,
No one remember old Marcus Garvey

Children, children, children, children
Humble yourself and become one day somehow
You will remember him you will
No one remember old Marcus Garvey,
no one remember old Marcus Garvey

Garvey's old yet young
Garvey's old yet young
Garvey's old yet young
Garvey's old yet young...

This song. Is how I LEARNED about Marcus Garvey. Burning Spear and a lot of other Reggae artists taught us many things. Roots Reggae is the best music ever. Even this new generation is still carrying that torch. Bands like Chronixx. God bless them.

I adore Winston Rodney's voice, not forgetting the teachings and the message.

OMG, how could I forget this Marcus Garvey song on the anniversary of his birth on August 17, 1887. From Burning Spear's third album, Marcus Garvey (1975)  The Mighty Diamonds and Culture jumped into my mind right away this morning, but the always humble Winston Rodney let them go first,  knowing that I would never forget  him. How could I?  Burning Spear is one of the stars that shine brightest in the history of Western music. (And for being so self-effacing, Winston gets an added version side.)

@***** thanks for your always intelligent input. John.  Indeed, Phil Ochs is a badly under appreciated singer.

Very interesting @willieluncheonette​ I hadn't heard of Marcus Garvey, so this prompted me to look him up. A man ahead of his time, very important. Thanks for the post, I always enjoy learning new things, you always put up interesting things!
