Buffalo soldier, ……………………………………. ……………………………….:

Buffalo soldier troddin' through the land, wo-ho-ooh!

Troddin' through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea.
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

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 was a buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta -
Buffalo soldier in the heart of America.

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!

If you know your history,


Then you would know where you coming from,
Then you wouldn't have to ask me,
Who the 'eck do I think I am.

Dreadie, 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!

Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for America;


Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival;
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the Caribbean.

Troddin' through San Juan in the arms of America;


Troddin' through Jamaica, a buffalo soldier# -
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival:
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta.

I mean it, when I analyze the stench -


To me it makes a lot of sense:
How the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo soldier,
And he was taken from Africa, brought to America,
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.
Buffalo Soldier, Bob Marley

-Chanson sortie sur l’album Confrontation en 1983, 2 ans après la mort de Bob Marley. Une des dernières chansons enregistrées par Bob Marely.

-Buffalo Soldier : surnom donné aux membres du 10ème régiment de cavalerie de l’armée des Etats-Unis en 1866. Régiment composé uniquement de noirs américains. Le dernier Buffalo Soldier, Mark Matthews, est mort en 2005 à l’âge de 111 ans et est enterré au cimetière militaire d’Arlington.

-Eloge faite par un noir américain vers ses ancêtres noirs américains.

Chanson qui souligne le rôle des noirs dans la construction d’un pays qui continue à l’opprimer.

Exemple marquant de noirs ayant réussi avec courage, honneur et distinction à se frayer un chemin sur une route dominée par les blancs, en persévérant, en dépit du racisme.

Le Buffalo Soldier lutte pour sa survie dans un pays qui depuis les années 60 entame un lent processus pour intégrer ses immigrés. Un exemple de courage et de persévérance face aux préjugés raciaux.
