Never Get Weary
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


was down in the valley for a very long time
and I never get weary yet
I was down in the valley for a very long time
and I never get weary yet
I was born and raised in a little old shack with my poor family
I was born and raised in a little old shack with my poor family,
with my poor family...

(Chorus) I was born before Christopher Colombus, yeah
And I was born before the Arawok Indians
[Trying] creation, before this Nation
I always remember, I can't forget.. wowowow

I was walking on the shore when they took me on the ship
and they throw me overboard
and I swung right out of the belly of the whale
and I never get weary yet
They put me in jail and I did not do no wrong
and I never get weary yet
Say they put me in jail and I didn't get no bail
and I never get weary yet,
never get weary yet...

(Repeat Chorus)

I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet
I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet

I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family
I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family, with my poor family

I was born before Christopher Columbus, yeah
And I was born before the Arawak Indians
Trying creation, before this nation
I always remember, I can't forget, wo, wo, wo

I was walking on the shore when they took me in the ship
And they throw me overboard
And I swung right out of the belly of the whale
And I never get weary yet

They put me in jail and I did not do no wrong
And I never get weary yet
Say they put me in jail and I didn't get no bail
And I never get weary yet, never get weary yet

I know, I was born before Christopher Columbus, yeah
And I was born before the Arawak Indians
Trying creation, before this nation
I always remember, which I can't forget, oh, yeah

I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet
I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet

I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family
I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family, with my poor family

Yes, I was born before Christopher Columbus, yeah
And I was born before the Ara wok Indians
Trying creation, before this nation
I always remember, I can't forget, wo

Oh, I never get weary
Well, I never get weary
