Lyrics: Peter Tosh

Don’t care where you come from
As long as you’re a black man
You’re an African.
No mind your nationality
You have got the identity
Of an African.

‘Cause if you come from Clarendon
And if you come from Portland
And if you come from Westmoreland
You’re an African

Don’t care where you come from
As long as you’re a black man
You’re an African.
No mind your nationality
You have got the identity
Of an African.

‘Cause if you come from Trinidad
And if you come from Nassau,
…said if you come from Cuba
You’re an African.

Don’t care where you come from
As long as you’re a black man
You’re an African.

No mind your complexion
There is no rejection
You’re an African.

Cause if your ‘plexion high, high, high
And if your ‘plexion low, low, low
And if you ‘plex in between
You’re an African.

No mind where you come from
If you’re a black man
You’re an African

No mind the denomination
That is only segregation
You’re an African.
Cause if you go to the Catholics
And if you go to the Methodists
And if you go to the Church of Gods
You’re an African.

Don’t mind where you come from
As long as you’re a black man
You’re an African
No mind your nationality
You have got the identity
Of an African.

‘Cause if you come from Brixton
And if you come from Weesday
Said if you come from Wingstead
And if you come from Brooklyn
And if you come from Queens
And if you come from Manhattan
And if you come from Canada
And if you come from Miami
And if you come from France
And if you come from Switzerland
And if you come from Germany
And if you come from Russia
And if you come from Taiwan
Said if you come from I don’t know where
…..
