Rumours Of War
Peter Tosh
Album: Mystic Man

Talking 'bout wars
and rumours of wars.
Talking 'bout the coming of Jah.
The time is not far.

Oh my majesty!
Please rescue me.
Oh my majesty!
Can't you rescue me?

Wars.
Rumours of war.
Talking 'bout the coming of my father.
The time is not far.

God when I reach home
how happy I'll be.
To know that I am home
where I am free.

Talking 'bout a war
and rumours of wars.
Talking 'bout the coming of the Negus.
The time is not far.

Oh my, oh my, oh my majesty!
Can't you rescue, rescue me?

When I look over creation
all I see is men's imagination
causing complication
amongst the younger generation.

Wars.
Rumours of wars.
Talking 'bout the coming of Jah Jah.
The time is not far.

When I reach that place
gonna be happy and free.
To know that I'm in that land
and I've got my liberty.

And I see:
War in a Beirut.
War in a Lebanon.
War in a Syria. Yeah.
War in a Pakistan.
War in Namibia. Yeah.
War in Soweto.
I said, war in Johannesburg.
And I see war in South Africa.

Make sure your hands and heart are clean
so you can rally around the red, gold and green.

War.
Rumours of war.
Coming of Jah Jah.
