No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry

Said, said, said, I remember when a we used to sit
In a government yard in Trenchtown
Obba, obba – observing the ‘ypocrites – yeah!
Mingle with the good people we meet, yeah!
Good friends we have, oh, good friends we have lost
Along the way, yeah!
In this great future, you can’t forget your past
So dry your tears, I seh. Yeah!

No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry. Eh, yeah!
Ayyye little darlin’, don’t shed no tears
No, woman, no cry. Eh!

Said – said – said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown, yeah!
And then Georgie would make the firelights
As it was logwood burnin’ through the nights, yeah!
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I’ll share with you
My feet is my only carriage
And so I’ve got to push on through
Oh, while I’m gone,
Everything’s gonna be all right!
Everything’s gonna be all right!
Everything’s gonna be all right, yeah!
Everything’s gonna be all right!
Everything’s gonna be all right-a!
Everything’s gonna be all right!
Everything’s gonna be all right, yeah!
Everything’s gonna be all right!

So no, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
O little sister, don’t shed no tears
No, woman, no cry, eh

No, woman – no, woman – no, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
One more time I got to say
O little – little darlin’, please don’t shed no tears
No, woman, no cry
