Buffalo Soldier

[D] Buffalo Soldier, [Bm] dreadlock Rasta
There was a Buffalo Soldier, in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

[F#m] When I analyze these things
[Em] To me, it makes a lot of sense
[F#m] How the dreadlock Rasta
[Em] Was the Buffalo [A7] Soldier

And he was taken from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
(Said he was a) Buffalo Soldier, dreadlock Rasta
Buffalo Soldier, in the heart of America

If you know your history
Then you would know where you coming from
Then you wouldn’t have to ask me
Who the heck do I think I am

I’m just a Buffalo Soldier, In the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, win the war for America

Said he was a, woe yoy yoy, woe woe yoy yoy
Woe yoy yoy yo, yo yo woy yo, woe yoy yoy
Woe yoe yoe, woe woe yoe yoe
Woe yoe yoe yo, yo yo woe yo woe yo yoe

Waiting In Vain

[ DM74 – GM74 – F#m4 – A7sus4 ]
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in vain…

[ D4 – Em4 – F#m4 – Em4 ]
From the very first time I blessed my eyes on you, girl
My heart say follow through
But I know, now, that I’m way down on your line
But the waitin’ feel is fine

Don’t treat me like no puppet on a string
‘Cause I know how to do my thing
Don’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumb
I wanna know when you gonna come

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in vain…

It’s three years since I’m knockin’ on your door
And I still can knock some more
Ooh girl, Ooh girl is it feasible
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more

You see, in life I know there’s a lot of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
While I waiting, while I’m waiting for my turn

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in vain…
