No Woman No Cry Lyrics

No woman, no cry (Repeat 4 times)

Said said
Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
Oba, ob-serving the hypocrites
As they would mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have had, oh good friends we've...

    Many people think that the song means that if you don't have a woman in your life, you won't have a reason to cry. That's just not true. He's telling a woman friend to not cry. There can really be no other interpretation, based on the lyric, "...don't shed no tear".

    Greetings, in the name of the Almighty, Rastafari
    Peace Be upon Uncle Nesta iternally,

    Robbie's Vibration of 'No Woman No Cry' , is FOR every Person on the face of the earth, ispecially woman, as 'women are the mother of creation' it is so.
    Rastafari, carry a baggage of pain from yesterday, which has created the love of today.
    one must uncover ones own sorrow and triumphs through Jah music, and not ponder passing judgements on our prophets.
    true?seen.
    Love and Prosperity
    OneHeart, Lion..Peter Dyer

    I think this song is to his wife while he was in Europe he was involved in some adultery with a young lady in the UK. This of-course made his wife sad, however she knew he loved her. So I think this song is to his wife telling her that he still loves her and, that he "remembers" her and thinks about her and, he is telling her not to cry.

    Wow. 'My feet is my only carriage'? Really? You sure it's not 'My faith is my only courage'?
