                   No Woman NO Cry - Bob Marley and the Wailers
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Art Whitaker
Email:     jaw_whitaker@yahoo.com

Tuning: almost but not quite a 1/2 (E-flat) step down from standard

This is how this song is played on the Studio version. I think playing this way sounds 
closer to the original then I have found.

Listen to the CD to get the timing right.. kind of a slow picking strum..

     So dry your tears I say


  No woman no cry
  No woman no cry

 said I remember when we used to sit
 In the government yard in trenchtown
 And then Georgie would make a fire light
 as it was our love would burnin through the night
 Then we would cook oatmeal porridge
 of which I'll share with you
 my feet is my only carriage
 So I've got to push on through..
