No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry.

Said – said – said: I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown,
Oba – obaserving the ypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet.
Good friends we have, oh, good friends weve lost
Along the way.
In this great future, you cant forget your past;
So dry your tears, I seh.

No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry.
ere, little darlin, dont shed no tears:
No, woman, no cry.

Said – said – said: I remember when-a we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown.
And then georgie would make the fire lights,
As it was logwood burnin through the nights.
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge,
Of which Ill share with you;
My feet is my only carriage,
So Ive got to push on through.
But while Im gone, I mean:
Everythings gonna be all right!
Everythings gonna be all right!
Everythings gonna be all right!
Everythings gonna be all right!
I said, everythings gonna be all right-a!
Everythings gonna be all right!
Everythings gonna be all right, now!
Everythings gonna be all right!

So, woman, no cry;
No – no, woman – woman, no cry.
Woman, little sister, dont shed no tears;
No, woman, no cry.

I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown.
And then georgie would make the fire lights,
As it was logwood burnin through the nights.
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge,
Of which Ill share with you;
My feet is my only carriage,
So Ive got to push on through.
But while Im gone:

No, woman, no cry;
No, woman, no cry.
Woman, little darlin, say dont shed no tears;
No, woman, no cry.

Eh! (little darlin, dont shed no tears!
No, woman, no cry.
Little sister, dont shed no tears!
No, woman, no cry.)

dan ada interpretasi begini: (http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=1744)

No Woman, No Cry” is a reference to Englands prior control of Jamaica. “Woman” is a reference to the Queen of England. They used to protest in Trench Town all night long against England. A purely political song.

atau….

In 1969 Bob Marley predicted he would die at the age of 36, on the same night he wrote ‘Comma, Comma’ for Johhny Nash. He wrote ‘No Woman, No Cry’ in 1974. The song is about soothing a grieving widow. Remebering old friends and good (as well as bad)times. ‘In this bright future you can’t forget your past, so dry your tears’–no matter what happens you will never forget me. ‘My feet is my only carriage, so I’ve got to push on through, but while I’m gone everything is going to be alright’. He was diagnosed with melanoma in 1977–it started in his right great toe, refusing treatment until 1981 (he wrote the song in 1974) under Dr. Joseph Issel (former Nazi SS)as a last ditch effort. He refused treatment because it would interfere with his dancing and music–his feet are his ‘only carriage’ and so I will push on through. However it is too late and Bob Marley dies too young at the age of 36. Did Bob Marley not only predict the age of his death but also the natue of his death (1969 and 1974, respectively)? Incredible song by an admirable man, and one of the greatest songwriters of our time.

so, apapun saya pikir boleh2 saja…

ibarat bajaj di jakarta yang hanya sopirnya dan tuhan yang tahu mau kemana ia belok, demikian juga makna lagu ini, hanya sang legenda dan tuhan yang tahu pasti apa maknanya….
