Intro:

(n.c)
This generation, rules the nation,
With version.

Music happen to be the food of love,
Sounds to really make you rub and scrub.
I say;

Chorus 1:

[Cmaj7] Pass the Dutchie,
On the [Dm7]left hand side,
[Cmaj7] Pass the Dutchie,
On the [Dm7]left hand side.

It a gonna [Cmaj7]burn,
Give me music,
Make me [Dm7]jump and prance,
It a go [Cmaj7]done,
Give me the music,
Make me [Dm7]rock in the dance.

Verse 1:

It was a [Cmaj7]cool and lovely,
[Dm7] Breezy after-[Cmaj7]noon.[Dm7]
You could [Cmaj7]feel,
It ‘cos it [Dm7]was the month of [Cmaj7]June.[Dm7]

So I [Cmaj7]left my gate,
And [Dm7]went out for a [Cmaj7]walk,[Dm7]
As I [Cmaj7]pass the Dreadlock’s [Dm7]camp,
I heard them [Cmaj7]say;[Dm7]

Verse 2:

So I [Cmaj7]stopped to find out,
[Dm7] What was going [Cmaj7]on.
(How does it feel,
When you’ve [Dm7]got no food?)
‘Cos the [Cmaj7]spirit of Jah,
You [Dm7]know he leads you [Cmaj7]on.
(How does it feel,
When you’ve [Dm7]got no food?)

[Dm7] There was a [Cmaj7]ring of dreads,
And a [Dm7]session was there in [Cmaj7]swing.
(How does it feel,
When you’ve [Dm7]got no food?)
You could [Cmaj7]feel the chill,
As I [Dm7]seen and heard them [Cmaj7]say;
(How does it feel,
When you’ve [Dm7]got no food?)
