Keep on Moving
Lord I got to keep on moving
Lord I got to get on down
Lord I've got to keep on moving
Where I can't be found, where I can't be found
Lord they coming after me

I've been accused on my mission
Jah knows you shouldn't do
For hanging me they were willing yeah! yeah!
And that's why I've got to get on thru
Lord they coming after me

Lord I got to keep on moving
Lord I got to get on down
Lord I've got to keep on moving
Where I can't be found
Lord they're coming after me

I know someday we'll find that piece
Of land somewhere not nearby babylon
The war will soon be over and africa
Will unite the children who liveth in
Darkness have seen the great light

I've got two boys and a woman
And I know they won't suffer now
Jah forgive me for not going back
But I'll be there anyhow
Yes I'll be there anyhow

Lord I got to keep on moving
Lord I got to get on down
Lord I've got to keep on moving
Where I can't be found, where I can't be found
Lord they coming after meback to top

Natural Mystic
There's a natural mystic blowing through the air;
If you listen carefully now you will hear.
This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - don't ask me why.

Things are not the way they used to be,
I won't tell no lie;
One and all have to face reality now.
'though I've tried to find the answer to all the questions they ask.
'though I know it's impossible to go livin' through the past -
Don't tell no lie.

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air -
Can't keep them down -
If you listen carefully now you will hear.

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air.

This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - don't ask me why.

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air -
I won't tell no lie;
If you listen carefully now you will hear:
There's a natural mystic blowing through the air.
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air;
There's a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air.back to top
Riding High
You've been riding
You've been riding quite a while, child
(keep on riding, keep on riding)
You've been jiving
Like a peacock, that's your style
(keep on jiving), ooh (keep on jiving)

Now I remember the days in school
There wasn't a time when you didn't treat me cruel
Ooh, wait till I get my hooks on you
I'll show you what a fisherman can do

You're riding
Been riding quite a while, child
(keep on riding, keep on riding)
You've been jiving
Like a peacock, that's your style
(keep on jiving), ooh-wee (keep on jiving)

I say now, you always try to hurt me in the end
In the presence of all our good, good friends
But the patient man always win
Now I'll just wait till you give in

You've been riding
You've been riding quite a while
(keep on riding), keep on, ride (keep on riding)
You've been jiving
Like a peacock, that's your style
(keep on jiving ...), ooh-wee, alright (... on jiving)

At christmas, more like an easter bunny
Just like a rabbit, you're always on the run
But wait till I get my trap on you
I'll see where you gonna run to
Wait till I get my trap on you
Then I'll see where you gonna run to

You've been riding
You've been riding quite a while
(keep on riding), keep on, ride (keep on riding)
You've been jiving
Like a peacock, that's your style
(keep on jiving), ooh-wee (keep on jiving)

(so riding on my own) I need your love tonight
(riding on my own) a-when you hold me right ...back to top
