No Woman No Cry

by Bob Marley, covered by The Fugees

A dedication to all the refugees worldwide
One time say, say, say

/ C F C G / :

Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Brooklyn
Observing the crookedness
As it mingled with the good people we meet
Good friends we had, oh good friends we've lost   
Along the way
In this great future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears, I say, and to my peeps who passed away,

/ C G Am F / :

   No woman, no cry (2x)
   Here, little darlin', don't shed no tears
   No woman, no cry

   / C G Am F / C F C G / :

Said I remember when we used to rock
In the project yard in Jersey
And then Georgie would make a fire light
As stolen cars passed through the night
Then we'd hit the corner store
For roots, paper and brew, ooh ooooh
My drink's my only remedy
For pain of losing family, but while I'm gone, Shorty,

{Bridge}
Everything's gonna be all right (x2)
Fugees come to the dance tonight
Everything's gonna be all right

/ C G Am FG / / / C G Am F /

Everything's gonna be all right (x2)
The gun man's in the house tonight
Everything's gonna be all right

   Oh ah oh ah (x2 refrains)

   So woman no cry
   No, no woman, no woman, no cry
   Oh, my little sister, don't shed no tears
   No woman, no cry, say say say

Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
Observing the hypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we had, oh good friends we've lost   
Along the way, hey
In this great future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears, I say, and

   No woman, no cry (2x)
   Oh my little darlin', don't shed no tears
   No woman, no cry, to my peeps who passed away

   Oh ah oh ah (x1 refrain)
