Don’t look at me, I’m high on corn bread.
If you knew how many times you made me cry, would you care? If you knew how often I thought about you, would it matter? If you knew how hard you made it for me, would you apologize? If I asked for my heart back, would you give it?
Today I learned even though Bob Marley may have written the song No Woman, No Cry, or at least the melody, songwriter credits were given to Vincent Ford, a friend of Marley’s who ran a soup kitchen in Trenchtown, the ghetto of Kingston, Jamaica where Marley grew up. Bob Marley did this so royalty checks received by Ford would ensure the survival and continual running of his soup kitchen.
Just another reason to love Mr. Marley.
