Intro:

Gm  F, Cm (x2)

Gm  F, Cm  Dm (x4)

Verse 1:

      Gm               F       Cm  Dm
I was walkin' down the street,
       Gm                  F     Cm
Concen-tratin' on truckin' right,
  Dm      Gm                   F   Cm  Dm
I heard a dark voice beside of me,
             Gm                  F      Cm  Dm
And I looked round in a state of fright.

Bridge 1:

           Gm              F
I saw four faces, one mad,
  Cm               Dm
A brother from the gutter,
     Gm                      F
They looked me up and down a bit,
    Cm                    Dm
And turned to each other.

Interlude:

Gm  F, Cm  Dm

Gm  F, Cm

  Dm (n.c)
I say:

Chorus 1:

             Gm       F
I don't like cricket,
   D#  Dm
Oh no,
  Cm       Dm  D#
I love it.

             Gm       F
I don't like cricket,
   D#  Dm
Oh no,
  Cm       Dm  D#
I love it.

Break 1:

          Bb
Don't you walk through my words,
You got to show some respect.
Don't you walk through my words,
                        Am  D7
'Cos you ain't heard me out yet.

Interlude:

Gm  F, Cm  Dm (x2)

Verse 2:

               Gm                F      Cm  Dm
Well he looked down at my silver chain,
             Gm                   F  Cm  Dm
He said I'll give you one dollar.
              Gm               F    Cm  Dm
I said You've got to be jokin' man,
         Gm                      F  Cm  Dm
It was a present from me mother.

Bridge 2:

          Gm                 F
He said I like it, I want it,
     Cm               Dm
I'll take it off your hands,
              Gm                   F
And you'll be sorry you crossed me,
      Cm           Dm
You'd better under-stand,
              Gm    F  Cm
That you're a-lone,
  Dm            Gm    F  Cm
A long way from home.
      Dm (n.c)
And I say:

Chorus 2:

             Gm      F
I don't like reggae,
   D#  Dm
Oh no,
  Cm       Dm  D#
I love it.

             Gm      F
I don't like reggae,
   D#  Dm
Oh no,
  Cm       Dm  D#
I love it.

Break 2:

          Bb
Don't you cramp me style,
Don't you queer on me pitch.
Don't you walk through my words,
                        Am  D7
'Cos you ain't heard me out yet.

Interlude:

Gm  F, Cm  Dm,

Sinkin' pina coladas,
          G#m                  F#   C#m  D#m
I heard a dark voice beside me say,
          G#m                   F#  C#m  D#m
Would you like something harder.

Bridge 3:

   C#m            D#m
My harvest is the best,
           G#m                    F#
And if you try it you'll like it,
    C#m         D#
And wallow in a dreadlock holi...
G#m                          F#
 (Dreadlock, holi, Dreadlock holi,
C#m             D#m           G#m  F#  C#m
 Deadlock holi, Dreadlock holiday).

'Cos you ain't heard me out yet.
