There's a natural mystic
Blowing through the air
If you listen carefully now you will hear
This could be the first trumpet
Might as well be the last
Many more will have to suffer
Many more will have to die
Don't ask me why
Things are not the way they used to be
I won't tell no lie
One and all got to face reality now

Though I try to find the answer
To all the questions they ask
Though I know it's impossible
To go living through the past
Don't tell no lie
There's a natural mystic
Blowing through the air
Can't keep them down
If you listen carefully now you will hear
Such a natural mystic
Blowing through the air

This could be the first trumpet
Might as well be the last
Many more will have to suffer
Many more will have to die
Don't ask me why
There's a natural mystic
Blowing through the air
I won't tell no lie
If you listen carefully now, you will hear
There's a Natural Mystic blowing through the air

Such a Natural Mystic, blowing through the air
There's a Natural Mystic, blowing through the air
Such a Natural Mystic, blowing through the air
Such a Natural Mystic, blowing through the air
Such a Natural Mystic, blowing through the air

Pft Reggae haters can bite my bobble.

This is one of my favourite Bob tracks, if anyone cares to take the time this track is in the film Countryman which is well worth a watch for some Natural Mysticism
 

The soundtrack from that movie also has a version of Bob's song "Time Will Tell" that's breathtaking. 
Hey sweet RP, you couldn't be hitting my mellow any better tonight.  Life was never so good since I found you in my ears and life.!  XXOO  And I REALLY mean that!

Gah, there will be a time people will understand that rega is not music. like "hello i have zero skill to make music so i just do 2 notes the whole duration, someone without ears will like it for sure"

Besides that, i hope you all stay healthy and all, (even regea lovers, everyone can have revelations a day, never lose hope !)
 

Yea, Mon. Bob's reggae beats are beyond comparison, and intricacies pass most a dem commuters by... for sure. 
Revelations are to be had by those, who seek them. It has always been like that. Or so it seems, lest some new stories of un-seeking persons...

Nah, I'd have to go with some of the music commenters I see here.
I don't recall this being on Legend.  Were there multiple releases under this name? I'm not a reggae superfan, but I like some, and this is definitely nice.  Simple and uplifting.

Edit: Ahh, just after I posted this, I saw that the metadata doesn't match the image.  Ignore the first two sentences of my post.

Hypercritical I can be, but when it comes to Bob, I have almost no discernment.  Irae y'all.
From me 8 down to 7 
Bless all
Gold like, GODLIKE
Simple but very spiritually
beautiful if you are in a receptive mood

That's reggae...    On top of it, Marley, (and his fellow Selassie worshipers), are sexist, homophobic, misogynist, anti-Semites.    Pass.

Maybe someday RP will play some reggae that isn't Bob Marley.  Every Bob Marley song has been overplayed so many times it's painful to hear them hardly ever.  Please rate low on the principal of overplay.

Are they any relation to Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum?

{#Cool} nice.
Not much music on board this one.
Pretty darn dull.
The album title is listed as "Turn! Turn! Turn!".  Should be Exodus of course.
 ..... nice
Ha ha! I love this track so much. I'd dance to it all day long.

The Pretenders and Bob Marley with 3 songs of each other, ugh! Boring. And this is probably the most boring Marley song ever. One chord. it's like it's keeping time with a hen walking out of the barn.

Beautiful comment! I hope when you'll find out three chords in this song, it becomes better for you (tripled).

Sublime.
I won't tell no lie

I'd state the obvious and say "One of his best!"..but what a catalogue of great songs to choose from...and from an artist who by all rights should still be with us.  So sad to lose one so gifted.  10.

Nice Bob ,Reggey!!
From "Exodus", the only reagge CD anyone needs in their collection, really. Its that good.
Love the thumping bass!

{#Music}

Awesome! This is a perfect piece of music.........incrediblbly tight band



sitting here putting together the playlist for my next dance party
go bill !!
and rebecca !!
and all the stoned out expats in far flung places
all the heroes of the lost war in the islands of maui
and the european beat poets riding the trolley in downtown buddhapest with the iphone hooked up to their vest
and of course a shout out to my himalayan buddy up there in lakshman jula
on the banks of the holy river
where aarti flows down every night down the wide ganges
on the top of the world

Hey, Bob and The Cure are not mutually exclusive tastes IMO. They both frequently score 8-10 for me. I like the horns here...that really does it for me.

Neither me. Can't get enough of Bob's groove, though I've been listening to his music for the last 20 years.

That's right. These are 'interesting' times indeed & Marley the eternal 'seer' testified repeatedly about the coming Babylon. Could be that man's rapid & single-minded descent into mindless materialism is the cause of cosmic imbalances possibly resulting in premature tribulations...?

Great! I love all that is going on in the "background." :)
Great way to end my day.. ahhhhh..
Fantastic groove. Funktastic horns. Crankin' up the volume. Great segue from the previous tune.

Not arguing your point, but while we're at it, how's about we finally retire that cranky, tired phrase, "Politically Correct?" Is there a more "knee jerk" response than to saddle up the PC label?
Perfect start for the goodness that is "Exodus". :good-vibes.gif:
There are so many great Marley tunes. This one is one of my favorites.

Or maybe we're just tired of hearing the same riff time and time again on every single Bob Marley song. But, hey, I must congratulate you and your enlightenment -- way to illegitimize real struggles against racism with ungrounded hyperbole about a simple music taste.

Reggae is not just three chords. It is a mood, a feeling. What would music be if it did not evoke emotion from those who listen to it? We are not all scientists, talking about music in theory. Go visit a Carribean island, stay there for awhile and relax, and then tell me that reggae does not establish a mood and a feeling for you!
reggae sucks :P
This is one of my favorite Bob Marley tunes. This album and Natty Dread always bring back nice summertime-late-afternoon memories...Somebody pass me a Red Stripe, please.
