Toots And The Maytals - It Was Written Down Lyrics




It was written down there by those prophets
It was written down there on the ground
It was written down there by those prophets
It was written down there on the ground
One love, one heart
One eternity, one joy
Come sing a song with me and do your harmony
Go sing a song with me and do your harmony
My father sent me to warn the nation
It was written down there from creation
My father sent me to warn the nation
It was written down there from creation
One love, one heart
One eternity, one joy
Come sing a song with me and do your harmony
Go sing a song with me and do your harmony

    Orville Grant

    Toots is the greatest!..cannot be duplicated!

  21. Andrea Shavers

    "My Father sent me to warn the nations. It was written down at creation." Sounds like Jesus, Yeshua, is the One that is speaking in the song! What joy awaits all of those who love the LORD and are saved by His grace! Nothing but peace, joy, and love! Right now, we have tribulation, sadness, and persecution. Stay strong! It is going to be sooooo worth it to trust in God and to believe in all of His promises!

  22. Mary Giles

    one of my best songs by toots love him to the bone

  23. Laimont Lynch

    Uncle Toots still going strong!!! One Love...

  24. Andrew Carl Elliott

    this is the song that gave Bob Marley the idea to make a song called... one love, one heart.
    if you listen to the song you will hear the line.
    this song was made before Bob Marley made one love one heart.

    Bob The Pumpkin

    Bob wrote one love and recorded one love with the wailers vocal group (Bob, Peter, and Bunny) in the late 60's

    Ziggy Gong

    The Wailers' song came first.

  25. Andrew Carl Elliott

    all these early Artists are very inspirational and uplifting.
    they gave positive Consciousness Awakening lyrics.
    did anybody notice when he said "one love one heart" remember someone came out with a song by that name years later.
    their lyrics were so good back then, that you could take one word or one line from those songs and created a song of your own.
    which we know many have done.

    Andrew Carl Elliott

    I meant to say were very inspirational and uplifters

    felix Anenuwa

    So true

    Ziggy Gong

    I think The Wailers' song came first.
