"Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Roadblock)" as written by and Bob Marley....
I, rebel music
I, rebel music
Why can't we roam this open country?
Oh, why can't we be what we want to be?
We want to be free

Three o'clock roadblock, curfew
And I've got to throw away
Yes, I've got to throw away
Yes, I've got to throw away
My little herb stalk

I, rebel music
I, rebel music

Take my soul and suss me out
Check my life if I am in doubt
Three o'clock, roadblock
And, hey, Mr. Cop, ain't got no
(What you say down there?)
Ain't got no birth certificate on me now

I, rebel music
I, rebel music

I, rebel music

Take my soul and suss me out
Check my life if I am in doubt
Three o'clock, roadblock
And, hey, Mr. Cop, ain't got no
(What you say down there?) Hey Mr. Cop
Ain't got no birth certificate on me now

    General CommentThis song is Blessed from above, and so much deeper than our ears can coup with.
    All of the above comments about the strugle of man is true, but the essence of this song is truly religios.

    The 3 oclock roadbloack symbolizes the "block" of the devils hour, that starts from 3:00 AM until 3:59:59 AM. This is the 1 hour per day that the devil and its demons can roam the earth.

    This song is also a reflection on the temptations that the devil puts on the man.
    Bob is questioning hes faith in God, but i believe he was very aware of God and the devil, thous the Road Block.
