Toots And The Maytals - Never Get Weary Lyrics




I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet
I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet

I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family
I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family, with my poor family

I was born before Christopher Columbus, yeah
And I was born before the Ara wok Indians
Trying creation, before this nation
I always remember, I can't forget, wo, wo, wo

I was walking on the shore when they took me in the ship
And they throw me overboard
And I swung right out of the belly of the whale
And I never get weary yet

They put me in jail and I did not do no wrong
And I never get weary yet
Say they put me in jail and I didn't get no bail
And I never get weary yet, never get weary yet

I know, I was born before Christopher Columbus, yeah
And I was born before the Ara wok Indians
Trying creation, before this nation
I always remember, which I can't forget, oh, yeah

I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet
I was down in the valley for a very long time
And I never get weary yet

I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family
I was born and raised in a little old shack
With my poor family, with my poor family

Yes, I was born before Christopher Columbus, yeah
And I was born before the Ara wok Indians
Trying creation, before this nation
I always remember, I can't forget, wo

Oh, I never get weary
Well, I never get weary

    White on white you dont see anything
    Black on black you dont see anything
    Both need eachother to reveal themselves
    Why not say : strength FOR people

    "I was wrong before, Christopher Columbus, well I was wrong before...we howled like Indians, trodding thru creation, before this nation, I always remember, I can't forget" :)

    @Michael J Golda Much respect Michael, I had the vinyl release and the band posted the lyrics on the inner sleeve. You have a good ear for lyrics but let me make some minor adjustments:
    "I was from before Christopher Columbus
    I was from before the Arawak Indians..."

    Michael J Golda

    ahhhhh, Thank you so much for letting me know, time to research the "The Arawaks" 
    Take care, Larry!
