[Intro]

|Em      |Bm      |Em      |Bm      |
|Em      |Bm      |E       |E       |

|Am      |Dm      |Am      |Am      |
|Am      |Dm      |Am      |Am      |



[verse 1]
          Am        Dm          Am        
    This morning I woke up in a curfew;
 Am      Dm          E                       
    Oh God, I was a prisoner, too - yeah!
 Am                 Dm             Am
    Could not recognize the faces standing over me;
 Am               Dm                  E
    They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality. Eh!
    
Am            Dm                   Am
    How many rivers do we have to cross,
Am            Dm               E
    Before we can talk to the boss? Eh!
Am           Dm             Am
    All of we got, it seems we have lost;
Am                Dm              E
    We must have really paid the cost. (That's why we gonna be)
    

[chorus 1]  
     Am            Dm       Am                  Am
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight (Say we gonna burn and loot)
     Am            Dm       Am     
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight (One more thing)
     Am            Dm       Am
    Burnin' all pollution tonight (Oh, yeah, yeah)
     Am           Dm       Am
    Burnin' all illusion tonight.
    
    Oh, stop them!
    

[verse 2]
Am              Dm           Am
    Give me the food and let me grow
Am            Dm           E    
    Let the Roots Man take a blow.
Am            Dm                   Am
    All them drugs gonna make you slow now
Am               Dm            E      
    It's not the music of the ghetto. Eh!


[chorus 2]    
     Am             Dm       Am                 
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (Who can stop the tears?)
     Am             Dm       Am
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (We've been suffering these long, long-a years!)
     Am             Dm       Am   
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (Will you say cheer?)
     Am             Dm       Am  
    Weeping and a-wailin' tonight (But where?)
    

[verse 2]
Am              Dm           Am 
    Give me the food and let me grow
Am          Dm              E      
    Let the roots man take a blow. (I must say ")
Am                      Dm        Am
    All them, all them drugs gonna make you slow
Am               Dm               E
    It's not the music from the ghetto.   (We gonna be)


[chorus 1]
     Am            Dm       Am  
    burning and a-looting tonight (To survive, yeah!)    
     Am            Dm       Am  
    Burning and a-looting tonight (Save your baby lives)
     Am            Dm       Am     
    Burning all pollution tonight (Pollution, yeah, yeah!)
     Am           Dm       Am    
    Burning all illusion tonight (Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord!)


[Outro - Fade out]        
     Am             Dm       Am  
    Burning and a-looting tonight
     Am             Dm       Am  
    Burning and a-looting tonight
     Am             Dm       Am  
    Burning all pollution tonight.

About the artist behind Burnin And Lootin:

Robert "Bob" Nesta Marley OM (February 6, 1945 – May 11, 1981) was a Jamaican musician, singer-songwriter, and Rastafarian. He was the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for the ska, rocksteady and reggae bands: The Wailers (1964 – 1974) and Bob Marley & the Wailers (1974 – 1981). Marley died nearly thirty years ago, but remains the most widely known and revered performer of ska/reggae music, and is credited for helping spread Jamaican music to the worldwide audience.[1]

Marley's best known hits includes "I Shot the Sheriff", "No Woman, No Cry", "Exodus", "Could You Be Loved", "Stir It Up", "Jamming", "Redemption Song", "One Love" and, together with The Wailers, ""Three Little Birds".,[2] as well as the posthumous releases "Buffalo Soldier" and "Iron Lion Zion". The compilation album, Legend, released in 1984, three years after his death, is the best-selling reggae album ever (10 times platinum[3]), with sales of more than 12 million copies.[2]
