Bob Marley - Talkin' Blues Lyrics

Yeah! Oh, yeah! Now!
Cold ground was my bed last night (bed last night)
And rock was my pillow, too; (doo-oo-oo-oo-oo!)
Cold ground was my bed last night (bed last night)
And rock was my pillow, too. Yeah!

I'm saying: talkin' blues (talkin' blues),
talkin' blues (talkin' blues);
They say your feet is just too big for your shoes. (shoe-oo-oo-oo-oo)
Talkin' blues (talkin' blues), talkin' blues (talkin' blues):
Your feet is just too big for your shoes. (shoe-oo-oo-oo-oo)

Yeah, I've been down on the rock for so long, (so long)
I seem to wear a permanent screw; (screw-oo-oo-oo-oo)
I've been down on the rock for so long, (so long)
I seem to wear a permanent screw. (screw-oo-oo-oo-oo)
But-a I - I'm gonna stare in the sun,
Let the rays shine in my eyes.
I - I'm a gonna take a just-a one step more
'Cause I feel like bombin' a church -
Now - now that you know that the preacher is lyin'.
So who's gonna stay at home
When - when the freedom fighters are fighting?

Talkin' blues (talkin' blues), talkin' blues (talkin' blues):
They say your feet is just too big for your shoes, woe-oh-oh-oh!
Talkin' blues (talkin' blues), keep on talkin' blues (talkin' blues);
They say - you hear what they say -
Didn't you hear?

Cold ground was my bed (bed last night),
Rockstone - rockstone - rockstone was my pillow;
Cold ground was my bed last night (bed last night),
And rock was my pillow, too.

Sayin': (talkin' blues, talkin' blues):
I seem to wear a permanent screw - permanent screw.
Talkin' blues (talkin' blues), talkin' blues (talkin' blues):
Feet is just too big for your shoes. (shoe-oo-oo-oo-oo) [fadeout]

    I think he’s saying bum. When you’re homeless, you can get a free meal at a church, but then you have to listen to a bs sermon.

    Rick G

    Bunnin'.. like burning.

    Alesi Vakawaci

  43. jim higgins

    I was once homeless. I lost everything, not only my home but my wife and kids. I lost touch with all my family and friends and spent years suffering from depression. I now live on a beautiful little island with my beautiful wife and beautiful doggy, in a lovely home right next to a stunning beach. This song means so much to me and brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. But for a good reason now. Thanks Bob.

    Adiel Jauregui

    mierda dé tema


    Praise The Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father. Amen to that I was homeless and on heroin too but im sober now and not homeless anymore too. God bless you my brother

  55. Milly Ashby

    Honestly I don't know where you all got brother Bob Marley song Talkin Blues from why because I'm singing a long to the song with the words from one of his album that I have from his limited edition of 10,000 after it was announced his has passed over and there is a Certificate 08601 within my collection that I've got of all his original songs so I do know what I'm talking about specially when it comes to Bob Marley songs and that last verse ain't recorded in the original song so don't give me something to listen to that is false cause it's a dam disgrace to the King himself and if you ain't got his original version of this song please don't publish it at all that's the respect I have for a great man such as Bob Marley and his reggae music okay just being honest with you all and I just want you all to have respect for brother Bob Marley okay but it you all like I can write the proper words for this song Talkin blues because it's one of my favorite songs of his I love all his songs but this song really captured my heart and soul thanks hope no offense has been taken but I've got to be honest okay
