We came the long way
And I thought you knew
It was the long way
We been through the desert
Where no water flows
We’ve walked streets and highways
It was the long way
We’ve been on the mountains
And I thought you knew
We’ve been through the valleys
Where the green herbs grow
It was the long way…

(K. Byles 1975)

There’s a land that I have heard about
So far across the sea
To have you all, my dreamland
Would be like heaven to me

We’ll get our breakfast from the tree
We’ll get our honey from the bees
We’ll take a ride on the waterfalls
And all the glories, we’ll have them all

And we’ll live together on that dreamland
And have so much fun
Oh, what a time that will be
Oh yes, we’ll wait, wait, wait and see
We’ll count the stars up in the sky

And surely we’ll never die

(B. Livingston 1971)

Every man do his thing a little way different.
Every man do his thing a little way different.

The things you do, you do it in a different way from I.

Out of the hills of Zion, comes
Jah lightning and thunder
Jah lightning and thunder

Jah vengeance surely will come down, on anyone
Who still insists to stay in wicked Babylon.

The God shall roam
And shake the land
The Lord shall roam
And then, they’ll know

Jah vengeance surely will come down, on anyone
Who still insists to stay in wicked Babylon

The Lord shall roam
And shake the land
The Lord shall roam
And then, they’ll know
