Fig Tree
Bunny Wailer
Album: Blackheart Man

Never, never knew that the time would come
when every man's got find where he does come from.
Never, never knew that the time would come
when every fig must find its fig tree
jump little figs into your trees
and say you are free, say you are free.

I've been rebuked and I've been scorned
rejected of men, now I'm born
to live anew, so won't you too.
My loved ones drink new wine with me
lets live in love in peace and harmony
and say we are free, say we are free.

In my (little) fig tree, there I wanna be, so safe and free.
In my (little) fig tree, there I long to be, from all misery.
In my (little) fig tree, there I wanna be, so safe and free.
In my (little) fig tree, there I long to be, from all misery.

Now every man is a man and every mickle make a muckle
don't free some and put some in a shackle.
For now is the time and the time is now
when we should live like in the days of old.
When every sheep had their fold
to say they are free (say they are free).
To say they are free.

In my (little) fig tree, there I wanna be, so safe and free.
In my (little) fig tree, there I long to be, from all misery.
In my (little) fig tree, there I wanna be, so safe and free.
In my (little) fig tree, there I long to be, from all misery.
In my (little) fig tree, there I wanna be, so safe and free.
In my (little) fig tree, there I long to be, from all misery.
