Verse:
Said said
C      G        Am              F
Said I remember when we used to sit
C         G               Am        F
In the government yard in Trenchtown
C       G           Am       F
Oba, ob-serving the hypocrites
        C
As they would 
      G                     Am        F
mingle with the good people we meet
C            G
Good friends we have had, 
    Am                 F
Oh, good friends we've lost 
C G       Am   F
along the way
C       G            Am               F
In this great future you can't forget your past

So dry your tears, I say

Verse:
Said, said, 
C      G        Am              F
Said I remember when we used to sit
C           G             Am         F
In the government yard in Trenchtown
C           G               Am        F 
And then Georgie would make the fire light
C        C       G                     Am    F
As it was log wood burnin' through the night
C       G               Am             F
Then we would cook corn meal porridge
C             G          Am     F
Of which I'll share with you

C  G          Am        F
My feet is my only carriage
C       G              Am
So I've got to push on through
    F
But while I'm gone, I mean...

    The riff for me is more like:
    xA)—-0–2—3–)
    xE)–3——3—-)
    xC)————–)
    xG)————–)

  3. the riff should be

    G-3-A-2-A-G-3-A-3

  4. Great song, great notes, great website. I’m just learning, but this is so helpful!
