“So Much Things to Say” Bob Marley Lyrics

Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Ooh yeah, yeah!
They got so much things to say right now;
They got so much things to say.
They got so much things to say right now;
They got so much things to say.

Eh! But I’ll never forget no way: they crucified Je-sus Christ;
I’ll never forget no way: they stole Marcus Garvey for rights.
Oo-ooh!
I’ll never forget no way: they turned their back on Paul Bogle.
Hey-ey!
So don’t you forget (no way) your youth,
who you are and where you stand in the struggle.

They go so very, so very, so very, so very, so very, so very,
so very, so very, so very, so very, so very –
everything they say – so much to say.
They got so much things to say, so much things to say.
I’n’I nah come to fight flesh and blood,
But spiritual wickedness in ‘igh and low places.
So while they fight you down,
Stand firm and give Jah thanks and praises.
‘Cos I’n’I no expect to be justified
by the laws of men – by the laws of men.
Oh, true they have found me guilty,
But through – through Jah proved my innocency.

Oh, when the rain fall, fall, fall now,
It don’t fall on one man’s housetop. Remember that:
When the rain fall,
It don’t fall on one man’s housetop.

They singin’: so very much, so very much, oh so very much,
so very, very –
They got so much things to say right now;
yeah, they got so much things to say.

Hey, but I’n’I – I’n’I nah come to fight flesh and blood,
But spiritual wickedness in ‘igh and low places.
So while, so while, so while they fight you down,
Stand firm and give Jah thanks and praises.
I’n’I no expect to be justified
by the laws of men – by the laws of men.
Oh, hey through Jah to prove my innocency,
I told you wicked think they found me guilty.

They got la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la;
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la;
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la;
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
– they “la” very much all the time.

So much things to say, rumour about,
they got so much without humour,
they don’t know what they’re doin’, yeah.

Guitar Technique


The rhythm and accents of this solo is different from most classic solos because most of the accents are on the upbeat. Also the solo has lots of big bends so make sure you are bending to the correct pitch. This solo can take a while to learn so, I broke it up into 3 parts. I recommend learning how to play one part really good before moving on to the next part.

“Slave Driver” Bob Marley

Slave driver the table is turned
Catch a fire so you can get burned
Slave driver the table is turned
Catch a fire you’re gonna get burned

Ev’ry time I hear the crack of the whip
My blood runs cold
I remember on the slave ship
How they brutalised our very souls
Today they say that we are free
Only to be chained in poverty
Good god, I think it’s all illiteracy
It’s only a machine that make money

Slave driver the table is turned
Slave driver the table is turned baby now
Catch a fire so you can get burned baby now
Slave driver the table is turned
Catch a fire so you can get burned

Ev’ry time I hear the crack of the whip
My blood runs cold
I remember on the slave ship
How they brutalised our very souls

Oh god have mercy on our souls
