Where the Tree Falls

Culture

The axe man have left the root of the tree and it is fruitless
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course, Mass a God
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
Dog safe to sit down and stretch out its tail too long.
Dirty nigga will mash it.
Every little thing you do too progressive
None ambitious people crush it
Them nuh have no ambition at all
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
Fuitless trees must be yewn down
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
And me hear Mr. Vally
Him a chat seh
Since brother Bob dead, reggae music gone down
But I have story for the youth
But as long as bitter belly Joseph Hill is alive
Reggae music is alive! (You know what kill me man?)
When I look around me I saw death stole away
My brother Dennis Brown
I'm crying, but we will carry on
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
Don't watch me, watch yourselves!
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
Not everything good fi eat sometime
Old time people say "Good fe talk"
And the same stone that the builder refused in the morning
Becomes the head cornerstone
And new king sit upon the throne
Hey, where the tree falls
Hey, there shall it lie until judgement take its course
Root of all immoral laws
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
(You know something?)
Marcus Garvey say all immoral laws
Must be disobeyed
And no powers shall make me bow down to the laws
Oh, no little faggot! (Forgot that! Man, not I!)
For where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
Whether you a tomato or you a cedar
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
We gonna rode little chariot, old little chariot a g'waan
Mek reggae music g'waan
And who's here will stay here
And who fi gone, is already gone
Lift up your red pearly gates
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
Keep on preying with me, my brother
Where the tree falls
There shall it lie until judgement take its course
