Intro:

Gm,

B7  Am (x8)

Verse 1:

B7                      Am
 Prediction, prediction foretold.
B7                         Am
 Prediction, yeh, from the days of old.
B7                     Am
 Prediction, yeh, from way back when,
The years Jah send, years Jah send.
B7                        Am
 Prediction, a long, long time ago.

Verse 2:

   B7
Se-lassie was neglected;
Am
 Tell me when?
         B7
Like the tales of The Messiah, yah;
    Am
All over again.
B7
 Garvey was rejected;
Am
 Tell me when?
           B7
Unlike the Baptist he has kept his head.
       Am
I said vank!
        B7
William Gordon and Paul Bogle led,
A rebellion 'cos they used their heads,
Am
 But had their necks in a noose.
           B7
Martyrs of freedom, freedom condemned,
    Am
But Jah Jah cut them loose, heh heh.

Verse 3:

B7
 Prophesised that,
Am
 We would suffer by,
B7
 Those who think themselves,
   Am
Su-perior to our colour, yes sah;
B7               Am
 Descendants of,
Naiman the Leper.
     B7                   Am
Ask Elisha, offsprings of,
Naiman the Leper.

To-morrow's what we're on about;
