Innocent Blood
Bunny Wailer
Album: Crucial! Roots Classics
Recorded: 1980

Too much blood, blood around.

It's a long time I no hear a China man
take a gun to shoot another China man.
It's a long time I no read there an Indian
take a gun to shoot another Indian.
It's a long time I no see a Syrian
take a gun to shoot another Syrian.
You will never see a ministerial politician
take a gun to shoot down another one.

Then how you a go gun down your black brother?
How you a go shoot down your black sister?
How you a go gun down your grandmother?
When the whole a we come from Africa!
When the whole a we come from Africa!
How you a go shed innocent blood!
How you a go shed innocent blood!
How you a go shed innocent blood!

When a you own flesh and blood!
You are only destroying your own black nation.
A you own flesh and blood!
No take no pride to destroy your nation.

It's a long time I no see a congress man
take a gun to shoot another congress man.
It's a long time I no read there a president
take a gun to kill another president.
It's a long time I no read there a prime minister
take a gun to shoot a prime minister.
You will never see a ministerial politician
take a gun to shoot down another one.

So when you gonna gun down your black brother.
And when you gonna shoot down your black sister.
When you gonna gun down your black brother.
Remember that the whole a we come from Africa!
Remember that the whole a we come from Africa!
So when you gonna shed innocent blood!
When you gonna shed innocent blood!
When you gonna shed innocent blood!

Remember ???
???
Said ???
a pay long sentence and you can't come ???
??? this political tribal massacre,
for the whole a we come from Africa!
??? this black political tribal massacre,
for the whole a we come from Africa!

Remember a you own flesh and blood!
Remember a you own flesh and blood!
You are only destroying your own black nation.
A you own flesh and blood!
