 Dready got a job to do,

And he's got to fulfill that mission.
Bb          Gm                  Eb           F
 To see his hurt could be their, greatest am-bition.

 But we will sur-vive in this world of compe-tition.

 All and all you can see a gwan,
      Bb                F     Bb  F
Is to fight against the Rasta-man.
        Bb                   F         Bb     F
So they build their world on great con-fusion,
   Bb              F          Gm
To force us in the devil's il-lusion.

Bb             F          Bb   F
But the stone that the builder re-fuse,
Bb            F           Bb    F
 Shall be the head corner-stone.

And no matter what games they play,
          Bb                   F            Gm
We've got something they could never take a-way,
          Bb                   F            Gm
We've got something they could never take a-way.

 No time to be de-ceived,
                     Eb              Bb
Brothers, you should know and not be-lieve.
              Eb                            Gm
Jah says this judgment, could never be with water,

Every-where the fire is burning;
    Bb          F             Gm
Des-troying and melting their gold,

Des-troying and wasting their souls.

 Go deh dready, dready, go deh, tell you what...

Bb              F             Bb    F
 Now the people gather on the beach,
        Bb            F      Bb     F
And the leader try to make a speech.
        Bb             F              Bb
But the dread again to tell them it's too late;
F        Bb           F             Gm
 Fire is burning man; pull your own weight,
        Bb           F             Gm
Fire is burning man; pull your own weight.

Natty dread rides again, (Natty dread rides again),

And me say; go deh dready, dready, go deh, (go deh, go deh).
   Bb                             Gm
Go ride Natty, ride, (Natty dread rides again),
Eb                             F
 Go deh dready, dready, go deh, (go deh, go deh).
Bb                        Gm
 Riding through the storm,
Eb                       F
 Riding through the calm, (go deh, go deh).
Bb                   Gm
 Oh, ride Natty ride,
Eb                             F
 Go deh dready, dready, go deh.
