Riverside

Culture

Where is the love to be found, oh People?
Nowhere around...

For I woke on Saturday morning
Feeling sticky and dirty after work
Took a walk down a riverside

I roll a little spliff
Sat down on a stone and start to cool off
With my burden down a riverside

For I check around the youths
And I try to teach the truth
Lay their burden on the riverside

I walk through every corner
Try to find someone to talk to but I have to
Lay their burden on the riverside

For I walk and I talk
And I linger and I search
Lay their burden on the riverside

And I walk, I met the youthman pocket
And I try to search around them
Lay their burden on the riverside

And I sat down quietly
Watch the fishes circle around the little stones
Lay their burden on the riverside

I cup my ears and I heard the little birds
Whistling in the tree like so
Lay their burden on the riverside

Live good among your neighbor
Like sister and brother and
Come with me a riverside

All you need is pray to Jah, quality
You see secret shall be revealed
Lay their burden on the riverside

(solo)

Jah provides for the birds in the air
And the fishes in the sea so what about me
Lay their burden on the riverside

Look at the crow they toil not neither do they spin
Yet father provide far them
Lay their burden on the riverside

Let us walk and talk
And pray quietly in search
Lay their burden on the riverside

Look at the color of those clothes, oh Jah
Make each and every one individually
Lay their burden on the riverside

Where is the love?
Where is the togetherness too?
Lay their burden on the riverside

I can't take the war and I can't take the shooting
Neither the looting, just
Lay their burden on the riverside

I tried around Rema
Even in The Jungle
To find a quiet rest

Round there in a Nannyville
My heart come to a trail
Lay their burden on the riverside

And I knock, and I search
And I whisper and I preach
Lay their burden on the riverside

Where is the quietness
And the love to be found in some corner?
Lay their burden on the riverside

Let us walk, let us search
Let us examine and let us see
Lay their burden on the riverside
