Come by sea, come by land, come by air

We’re celebrating, the start of a brand new thing
North Africa
West Africa
Central Africa
East Africa
South Africa

Oh beautiful African Land,

We’re all the same, breakdown mental chains
Now and forever let freedom reign

People are you ready?
Let’s celebrate a new day!

Here in Africa Land
Africa Land

I’m coming home, I’m coming home. Jah!
En Sengalla girl on one corner, it be Eitrea to Angola, Ethiopia to South Africa, this is the land of our forefathers
Land of the (unknown)
Place is the birth of the ancestor
From Congo unto Nigeria
Lift up your voice and shout “Africa”!

In unity we will achieve
here we stand on victory street
One goal, one aim, one destiny
People are you ready???
Let’s celebrate a new day!

African chant (unkown lyrics so far)

Meet “I” in Capetown

Come by sea, come by land, come by air, come hand in hand

En Sengalla girl on one corner, it be Eitrea to Angola, Ethiopia to South Africa, this is the land of our forefathers
Land of the (unknown)
Place is the birth of the ancestor
From Congo unto Nigeria
Lift up your voice and shout “Africa”!

2 Jammin' In The Rain

FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD!

“Hail family, this version of Bob Marley’s “Jammin’” (in case someone doesn’t know) was recorded in Sao Paulo, Brazil during our tour with Shakira. I remember this song and this show specifically because the rain was gently falling on my head and it gave me a really good vibe. I called “Jammin’” instinctively as we were about to start “Black Cat”, it wasn’t planned, it wasn’t on the set list, it was just a feeling. I always try and follow the truth inside of me. I wanted to share that vibe with you. It’s called “Jammin’ in the rain.” Enjoy and we will talk soon. I will never forget thirty years ago. luv powah.” – Ziggy Marley

Ooh, yeah! All right!
We’re jammin':
I wanna jam it wid you.
We’re jammin’, jammin’,
And I hope you like jammin’, too.

Ain’t no rules, ain’t no vow, we can do it anyhow:
I’n’I will see you through,
‘Cos everyday we pay the price with a little sacrifice,
Jammin’ till the jam is through.

We’re jammin’ –
To think that jammin’ was a thing of the past;
We’re jammin’,
And I hope this jam is gonna last.

No bullet can stop us now, we neither beg nor we won’t bow;
Neither can be bought nor sold.
We all defend the right; Jah – Jah children must unite:
Your life is worth much more than gold.

We’re jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’)
And we’re jammin’ in the name of the Lord;
We’re jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’),
We’re jammin’ right straight from Yah.

Yeh! Holy Mount Zion;
Holy Mount Zion:
Jah sitteth in Mount Zion
And rules all creation.

Yeah, we’re – we’re jammin’ (wotcha-wa),
Wotcha-wa-wa-wa, we’re jammin’ (wotcha-wa),
See, I wanna jam it wid you
We’re jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’)
I’m jammed: I hope you’re jammin’, too.

Jam’s about my pride and truth I cannot hide
To keep you satisfied.
True love that now exist is the love I can’t resist,
So jam by my side.

We’re Jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’), yeah-eah-eah!
I wanna jam it wid you.
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’,
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin';
Hope you like jammin’, too.
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’ (jammin’),
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’ (jammin’).
I wanna (I wanna jam it wid you) – I wanna –
I wanna jam wid you now.
Jammin’, jammin’ (hope you like jammin’ too).
Eh-eh! I hope you like jammin’, I hope you like jammin’,
‘Cause (I wanna jam it wid you). I wanna … wid you.
I like – I hope you – I hope you like jammin’, too.
I wanna jam it;
I wanna jam it

3 Don't You Kill Love

FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD!

From Ziggy: “We have a new free download for you taken from our 2004 USA tour, a VERY rare live version of “DYKL”. The only year I did that song live haven’t played it since so yes, it’s pretty rare even for me. This song is on the Dragonfly album the live version is from Santa Cruz, USA, 2004. Enjoy and share. Love.”

Don’t you kill love don’t you kill love don’t you kill love

In the blink of an eye time passes us by
Where does it go
Now will you take a stand for love I am
Forever more
These wars have wounded my heart so my trust breaks apart
To human I say these words

Don’t you kill love don’t you kill love don’t you kill love

This chance we should not miss to share this sacred bliss
And spread it all around I’m gonna spread it all around
My heart been broke before but still I must endure
Keep the spirits high keep the spirits high
Cause it’s the greatest things in life calls for the most sacrifice
Are we brave are we brave enough

Don’t you kill love don’t you kill love don’t you kill love

4 A Fire Burns For Freedom

FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD!

This early version/acoustic version of “A Fire Burns For Freedom” is available on the Patagonia music sampler.

A revised version of this song appears as the title track on Ziggy’s album Wild and Free, and includes Woody Harrelson on vocals!

A fire burns for freedom
A fire burns for freedom
A fire burns for freedom
A Fire burns for freedom
The smell of decent is I
I am standing for the truth
Too long has been denied
The data of changing is rising
I hope we realize
Unchained wings let angels fly

I see hemp fields forever
Growing wild and free
I see marijuana trees growing wild and free
I see hemp fields forever growing wild and free
Wild and free

A crime against nations
A war is waged
There is a message in the wind for every race
Peace and love we sew
So let us grow
Is good for the body
Is good for the soul

I see hemp fields forever
Growing wild and free
I see marijuana trees growing wild and free
I see hemp fields forever growing wild and free
Wild and free

Deny the tree of life
So does your lies
This damn hypocracy, cost so many lives
Corporation greed can only see
Small farmers survive by planting weed

I see hemp fields forever
Growing wild and free
I see marijuana trees growing wild and free
I see hemp fields forever growing wild and free
Growing wild and free

A fire burns for freedom
A fire burns for freedom
A fire burns for freedom

5 Can You Feel It

FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD!

(Featuring Chuck D and Linda Perry)

From AlterPolitics: Inspired by the Occupy movement, Ziggy Marley, 4 Non-Blondes’ Linda Perry, and Public Enemy’s Chuck D recently collaborated in the studio, producing a very catchy reggae song, entitled “Can You Feel It?” Inspirational political songs, these days, seem few and far between. Too often the lyrics come off as preachy and amateurish, and fail to provoke any passion or soul. Marley, Perry, and Chuck D managed to pull it off with this track. The political verses work, and the soulful Perry-led chorus will leave you humming the song long after it ends. “Can You Feel It?” was released in June as a download to “enjoy, and share around the world freely.”

From Ziggy: “I was just happy to see people standing up for something at that level where it’s not about a student or religious thing, or even a politic per se, it was just a people thing … and how the economic structure of America seems to have been manipulated by those who have this inside knowledge or inside track. The common people don’t have that inside thing… I want to see more of that. What I knew America for was that, really, people standing up in the streets and protesting things, and changing things… During the Gulf War and even after that, I was wondering how so many things were being put over on the American people. How are all these things being done, and the American people seem to not be involved in it? I was just happy to see the people up and about and giving the system a run for its money. That song was a part of that.”

People been led astray

The hope of a new day comes
We’re gonna turn right what’s been wrong

Can politicians find a solution?
Yeah some may have good intentions
But when the root is corrupted
You know that the fruit can’t be trusted

So what is the message?
Ya politics is not impressive
Now you want run this town
Till the revolution took you down

Even though I might be afraid
