"Soul Rebel" as written by and Ross/law Anderson....
I'm a rebel, soul rebel
I'm a capturer, soul adventurer
I'm a rebel, soul rebel
I'm a capturer, soul adventurer

See the morning sun (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
On the hillside (ooh)
Not living good, yeah! Travel wide,
Said, I'm a living man, said, I'm a living man
I've got work to do (oh)
If you're not happy, children,
Then you must be blue
(Must be blue, must be blue) people say

I'm a rebel, let them talk
Soul rebel, talk won't bother me
I'm a capturer, that's what they say
(Soul adventurer) night and day
(I'm a rebel) I'm a rebel soul rebel
Do you hear them, Lippy?
I'm a capturer
Soul adventurer

See the morning sun (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
On the hill side (oh)
If you are not living good, travel wide,
Said, I'm a living man (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
I've got work to do
If you're not happy,
You must be blue

I'm a rebel (ooh-ooh)
Soul rebel
I'm a capturer (ooh-ooh)

    General CommentIn Soul Rebel, Bob talks about how he isn't a rebel without a cause. He's an adventurer; he lives his life how he wants to. "If you're not living good, travel wide," he says. If you're unhappy, then you need to change your life. Travel wide.

    General CommentMy favourite song with mr.Marley, ever. It never fails to make me forget about whatever is troubling me and just let go of everyday life for three minutes and twenty seconds... Pure reggae magic.

    General CommentMy fav song from Marley. This song is amazing. There's a version even more great from this song called Run For Cover. It makes me smile, cry, everything.

    General Commenti think the title, soul rebel, means that he doesnt give in to people who try to tell him how to live, so he is a rebel, and overall i think its about living life in a way that you are content with, and if you aren't happy with life now you have to find yourself

    General CommentThis is also probably my favourite Marley song. It sums up exactly how I feel a lot of the time, and just eases the mind.

    General CommentGreat song, my fav Bob Marley one. A shame I can never find it on pub jukeboxes. I think people have summed it up nicely already. And I think we can all relate to the message of 'If you're not living good, travel wide, You gotta travel wide' at times. Sometimes you got to move on.
