"Dem Gone" as written by Bobby Dixon, Bradley Brown, David Richard, Dalton Browne, Everold Dywer, Paul Henton and Otto Tilmann....
Jah Jah is real! Jah Jah is real!

Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)

Every day you get up and wish to have a meal
now you get a cut and wish to have it heal
and still you can not accept that Jah Jah is real
Tell me Mr.Man what´s the deal
You say you have everything sign and seel
Thought you won the case but nox you a appeal
You are the one who couldn´t hear now you the one to feel
evidently clear we choppin´down your shield
Dem ain´t going nowhere no time soon
Dem corrupt the east and now dem turn it to the moon
Plantain your garden and wish that it will bloom
but still you´re singing satan tunes

Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)

Mother earth was meant for man and woman to stay
me find out nuff a dem drifting away
Children can´t even find a place fi play
birds can´t find no seeds horses no hay
I see the weavers weaving but dem income delay
still me see dem searching for a brighter day
and now me come fi give it to you right away
Do you hear what I say

Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)

whapen`them?
Give me the mic deh for a moment make me talk to dem
and watch the eden dem a scatter when we walk to dem
and if you know you are not guilty stand up and don´t you run
to all my foes and friends
You may live to see today but you nuh know the end
Just read the writings on the wall it´s a message we send
And Babylon will never live to stop the rising of Jah son

Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)

    General CommentOne of the best Reggae songs I know. Gentleman continues what Bob Marley has started. I hope there will be more songs as perfect as this.
