Not An Easy Road

Buju Banton


It's not an easy road

Many see the glamour and the glitter

And think it's a bed of rose

Who feels it knows

Lord help me sustain these blows

From the minute of birth you enter this earth

Obstacles in your way to overcome first

Throughout everyday they seem to get worse

Oh my God cast away this curse

Everybody is trying to make ends meet

Through every way the endeavor

Lord God you see it

No matter what the world may say on the street

Must have to survive, won't accept defeat

Now I'm weary, tired and dreary

Got no time to waste

You know me


By you rise to see the sun

Who you love a pull you down

Trying to discredit the works you have done

Some can't satisfy with the past of ally

From the Scribes and Pharisees

You've got to stay wide

Hold up your head glancing on both side

Waiting anticipating praying for you to slide

Righteousness prevails with Jah by my side

Deliver Jonah from the whale

Never leave him to die

Help us all Abbaba Joni

Hold up my head and cry


I've been travelling all morning

With such a heavy load

Now it's noon and I cannot afford

To put down this burden alongside the road

I've got to hold it, got to humble myself

Like a child

Upon my face I've the got to put on a smile

Make up my mind just to walk more miles

Because I know that
