Bob Marley Zion train Lyrics

Last updated: 02/09/2014 06:10:36 PM

Zion train is coming our way;
The Zion train is coming our way;
Oh, people, get on board! (you better get on board!)
Thank the Lord (praise Fari) -
I gotta catch a train, 'cause there is no other station;
Then you going in the same direction (ooh-ooh).

Zion's train is coming our way;
The Zion's train is coming our way.

Which man can save his brother's soul? (save your brother's soul)
Oh man, it's just self control. (oo-hoo-oo!)
Don't gain the world and lose your soul (just don't lose your soul)
Wisdom is better than silver and gold -
To the bridge (ooh-ooh!)

Oh, where there's a will,
There's always a way.
Where there's a will,
There's always a way (way, way, way, way),

Soul train is coming our way; er!
Zion train is coming our way.

Two thousand years of history (history)
Could not be wiped away so easily.
Two thousand years of history (Black history)
Could not be wiped so easily (could not be wiped so easily).

Oh, children, Zion train is comin' our way; get on board now!
They said the Zion train is comin' our way;
you got a ticket, so thank the Lord!
Zion's train is - Zion's train is - Zion's train is - Zion's train -
They said the soul train is coming our way;
They said the soul train is coming our way.

Marley and the Jews | Reviewer: Conquering Lion of Judah | 2/9/14

There's no evidence that Marley had anything against the Jews or Zionism. Rastafarianism is based on Haile Selassie being a direct descendant of King Solomon of the House of David, via the Queen of Sheba and Menelik I. His grandmother, Ellen Marley ne Broomfield, was Jewish and his son Ziggy (David) is married to an Israeli Jew, Orly Marley,who is also his business manager. Ziggy visits Israel frequently and celebrates the Jewish holidays with their kids. Another Bob Marley son, Rohan Marley, will be visiting Israel next week for 2 nights of 69th birthday celebrations at the Barbie, well known Tel Aviv venue, where Israel's leading reggae and soul artists wull be paying tribute to the Iron Lion of Zion. In traditional Rastafarianism, Zion means Ethiopia, but in "de facto Rasta" its meaning is gradually migrating to mean the original Zion, which is variously Mt. Zion, the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and/or the land of Israel.

Meaning of Zion | Reviewer: debbie | 11/20/13

Zion in Rastafarianism means Ethiopia, where paradise on earth will come according to their beliefs. Zion, from the Old Testament, refers to a hill in Jerusalem on which the Kingdom of David was built when he brought the 12 tribes of Israel together. It's use refers to Jerusalem and Israel, and it has the same meaning for Christians and Jews. It is the root word for Zionism, the movement that calls for returning Jews to their ancestral homeland.

True meaning of Zion | Reviewer: Phil | 8/3/13

This song has nothing to do with Zionists. Bob Marley was a Rastafarian and later an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian. For Rastafarians Zion is 'the promised land' (Africa or the world as it should be freed from all oppression). Orthodox Christians have a similar understanding and see 'Zion' as 'the dwelling place of God' and the 'world to come'.

Zionists Raped Africa | Reviewer: Zion Train | 5/9/13

Zionists wrote in the Talmud that Ham (the black son of Noah) was cursed to Justify their transgression against black people. That's why RIP Bob wrote this song, Love you Marley.
