Capo on fret 3
[Em]    [D]    [C]    
[Em]    [D]    [C]    
[Em]    [D]    [C]    
[Em]    [D]    [C]    
[Em]    [D]    [C]    
[Em]    [D]    [C]    
I was [Em]walkin' down the street[Am]    
Concen-[Em]tratin' on truckin' right[Am]    
I heard a [Em]dark voice beside of me[Am]    
And I looked [Em]round in a state of fright[Am]    

I saw four [Em]faces one mad
A [Am]brother from the gutter
They [Em]looked me up and down a bit
And [Am]turned to each [Em]other [D]    [C]    
[(n.c)] I say      

I don't like [Em]cricket [D]oh   [C]no  
I [Am]love it[Bm]    [C]    
I don't like [Em]cricket [D]oh   [C]no  
I [Am]love it[Bm]    [C]    

Don't you [G]walk thru my words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk thru my words
'Cause you ain't heard me [D]out [C]yet [Em]    [D]    [C]    [Em]    [D]    [C]    

Well he looked [Em]down at my silver chain [Am]    
He said I'll [Em]give you one dollar [Am]    
I said You've [Em]got to be jokin' man[Am]    
It was a [Em]present from me Mother[Am]    

He said I [Em]like it I want it
I'll [Am]take it off your hands
And you'll be [Em]sorry you crossed me
You'd [Am]better understand that you're a-[Em]lone   [D]    [C]    
A long way from [Em]home [D]    [C]    
[(n.c)] And I say

I don't like [Em]reggae [D]no   [C]no  
I [Am]love it[Bm]    [C]    
I don't like [Em]reggae [D]no   [C]no  
I [Am]love it[Bm]    [C]    

Don't you [G]cramp me style
Don't you queer on me pitch
Don't you walk thru my words
'Cause you ain't heard me [D/F#]out yet[C]    [Em]    [D]    [C]    [Em]    [D]    [C]    

I hurried [Em]back to the swimming pool[Am]    
Sinkin' [Em]pina coladas [Am]    
I heard a [Em]dark voice beside me say[Am]    
Would you [Em]like something harder [Am]    

She said I've [Em]got it you want it
My [Am]harvest is the best
And if you [Em]try it you'll like it
And [Am]wallow in a Dreadlock Holi-[Em]day [D]    [C]    
[(n.c)] And I say

Don't like Ja-[Em]maica [D]oh   [C]no  
I [Am]love her[Bm]    [C]    
Don't like Ja-[Em]maica [D]oh   [C]no  
I [Am]love her[Bm]    [C]    

Don't you [G]walk thru her words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk thru her words
'Cause you ain't heard her [D]out [C]yet [Em]    [D]    [C]    [Em]    [D]    [C]    

I don't like [Em]cricket [D]oh   [C]no  
I [Am]love it ([Bm]Dreadlock [C]Holiday)
I don't like [Em]reggae [D]no   [C]no  
I [Am]love it ([Bm]Dreadlock [C]Holiday)
Don't like Ja-[Em]maica [D]oh   [C]no  
I [Am]love her ([Bm]Dreadlock [C]Holiday)







I was walkin' down the street
Concen-tratin' on truckin' right
I heard a dark voice beside of me
And I looked round in a state of fright

I saw four faces one mad
A brother from the gutter
They looked me up and down a bit
And turned to each other
[(n.C)] I say

I don't like cricket oh no
I love it
I don't like cricket oh no
I love it

Don't you walk thru my words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk thru my words
'Cause you ain't heard me out yet

Well he looked down at my silver chain
He said I'll give you one dollar
I said You've got to be jokin' man
It was a present from me Mother

He said I like it I want it
I'll take it off your hands
And you'll be sorry you crossed me
You'd better understand that you're a-lone
A long way from home
[(n.C)] And I say

I don't like reggae no no
I love it
I don't like reggae no no
I love it

Don't you cramp me style
Don't you queer on me pitch
Don't you walk thru my words
'Cause you ain't heard me out yet

I hurried back to the swimming pool
Sinkin' pina coladas
I heard a dark voice beside me say
Would you like something harder

She said I've got it you want it
My harvest is the best
And if you try it you'll like it
And wallow in a Dreadlock Holi-day
[(n.C)] And I say

Don't like Ja-maica oh no
I love her
Don't like Ja-maica oh no
I love her

Don't you walk thru her words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk thru her words
'Cause you ain't heard her out yet

I don't like cricket oh no
I love it (Dreadlock Holiday)
I don't like reggae no no
I love it (Dreadlock Holiday)
Don't like Ja-maica oh no
I love her (Dreadlock Holiday)
