MM- Buffalo Soldier- Bob Marley

Finally, Kuerdas has decided to join Music Monday. And the first music that Kuerdas wants to share is Buffaloo Soldier originally sang and performed by Bob Marley and The Wailers. Marley wrote the song along with Noel G “King Sporty” in 1980. I personally love the song because of its upbeat ryhthm and everytime Kuerdas gets to perform this song on stage, the audience are all up to their feet. 
The danceable rhythm of the song is only the tip of the iceberg. The song actually have  deeper meaning. Buffaloo Soldier refers to the “Blacks ” in the U.S. who fought in the Indian War in 1866. This was written as “Stolen from Africa, brought to America…”


Buffaloo Soldier is considered to be Bob Marley’s famous song. You’ve got to listen to this one:

Bob Marley – Buffalo Soldier lyrics

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta:
There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of america,
Stolen from africa, brought to america,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

I mean it, when I analyze the stench -
To me it makes a lot of sense:
How the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo 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 'eck 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.

Dreadie, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!
Buffalo soldier troddin' through the land, wo-ho-ooh!
Said he wanna ran, then you wanna hand,
Troddin' through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea.

Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for america;
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival;
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the caribbean.
