The Roots Man

"Roots man, tell me where is your head?"
"My head's always there where Jah is."

Ok, I get it that most of you just can't bring yourselves
to pressing "Thanks" when you have already enjoyed
and probably sung an equirhythmic rhymed translation
and then realized that you couldn't have done a better
one yourself. Yet, avoiding this gesture implicitly helps
to promote other, often subpar work on this site. St.

So, originally, it was a translation from Patwah to Russian?

I am not sure where BG got the idea for this song, but it is from the early Aquarium period when he actively explored everything concerning Jah.
