​Jah Defends The Music

This song is by Groundation and appears on the album A Miracle (2014).

Jah defend the music 100, Jah defend the music 100 Just as the cool cool beat arrives, with my heart at rest
The music of the hour, showed me that
A music that starts so slow, then, tumble like dominos
And in this time of redemption them say dig that garden
The food dem ripe, dig that garden
All day, with shovel and hoe

Jah defend the music 100, Jah defend the music 100 It's a song I sing, with beauty as it's aim
It will fly like a bird once grown, so don't you turn it away
All who live by the gun yes, will die by the sword
Man to man if so unjust, they live their life
Why can't they do right?
Some must be reborn

My song recall, a memory strong
It wasn't your fault, I hope you know
And for this companion of flesh and blood
All I can offer is more wood for the fire
And if it should raise it up and caste them out
When we caste them out you know they were meant to go

The harvester Jah
The harvester Jah
The harvester of this rainbow tree, yeah
Jah harvester of this rainbow tree
Some way some how, I gotta prove it in the music
Until it consumes all the mighty world
Revealing all those cultural vows man have to break
So when Jah call us back to the garden
We'd all be there together once again
Home to see the light, home
With the threat of Judgement to come
Oh the beauty of Kingdom come

Keep the riddim riding Jah!
Without stopping to chat up in the middle of the road to boast
Welcoming friends and foes
Just like Marcus Garvey
Him gone, him gone, him gone to Washington DC
Before the economic down swing
To speak to man's soul
But no one listened when he spoke
So he put it all into the music,
And it went far and wide, and wider still yes
Until it opened up heaven's doors
With a riddim to beat Satan's for sure
Lucifer speaks through silent vultures, while Jah, Jah, Jah

Jah defend the music 100, Jah defend the music 100 Slow rider, slew the dragon well
This music mission, to carry all Nations
To better-ness and one love creation yeah
You know it's in your attitude
To stay upfull the whole day through
Nothing could reach him but music would
Sound system rocking through your neighborhood
What ya gonna do about that?
