Lyrics

Sit with me awhile Let me tell you about a part of our country At the place Stony Gut back in 1865 Lived a man Paul Bogle who was everything a good man should be But they hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see They hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see. A man who followed Jesus And whose actions were in line with his teachings Who every Sunday morning The gospel would endeavour to preach Who understood the suffering of the people He plainly could feel But they hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see They hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see. With the men from Stony Gut Paul Bogle did come down that day |Through the bushes by the hills Until they reached the town of Morant Bay The reasons for his warnings and his actions they could not believe So they hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see They hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see. That was like yesterday, Still happening today History u
se to tell us That Paul Bogle was really a traitor Who murdered and rebelled Against the peaceful government of the day Now we can see clearly And we finally know the reasons indeed Why they hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see They hanged him by the courthouse An example for Jamaica to see. That was like yesterday, Still happening today Unu remember Michael Gayle, Braeton 7, Nuff youth from Tivoli, August Town, Rema and Jungle. Do you remember? Oh yeah Like yesterday things are happening just the same today Many get slain, I think it's insane It happens on and on
