[Chorus]
     A                F#m
Buffalo soldier, dreadlocked rasta
A                 A                       F#m
 There was a Buffalo Soldier in the heart of America
A   A                        F#m
 Stolen from Africa, brought to America

A           D         C#m      D     C#m
 I mean it, when I analyse the stench

And he was taken from Africa, brought to America
A         A                    F#m
 Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
A                   A                F#m
 Said it was a Buffalo Soldier, dreadlocked Rasta
A     A                       F#m       A
 Buffalo Soldier in the heart of America
 
 
[Verse]
  D                 C#m     D C#m
If you know you’re   history
     A              Bmadd11              F#m
Then you would know where  you're coming from
     D                    C#m
Then you wouldn't have to ask me
D C#m   A         Bmadd11          F#m
     Who the 'eck do     I think I am 
 
 
[Chorus]

                  Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlocked Rasta
There was a Buffalo Soldier in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

I mean it, when I analyze the stench -
To me it makes a lot of sense
How the Dreadlocked Rasta was a Buffalo Soldier
And he was taken from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

Said it was a Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlocked Rasta -
Buffalo Soldier in the heart of America

If you know your history
Then you would know where you're coming from
Then you wouldn't have to ask me
Who the heck do I think I am

I'm just a Buffalo Soldier in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Said he was a Buffalo Soldier win the war for America

Said he, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Buffalo Soldier troddin' through the land, wo-ho-ooh!
Said he wanna ran, then you wanna hand
Troddin' through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea

Said he was a Buffalo Soldier win the war for America
Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlocked Rasta
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the Caribbean

Singing, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Troddin' through San Juan in the arms of America
Troddin' through Jamaica, a Buffalo Soldier -
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Buffalo Soldier, Dreadlocked Rasta

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy! [fadeout]
