Get Up Stand Up

Written by Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. In DD 06 Wayne Jobson confirms, that Bob Marley wrote all of the song except the line: “We sick and tired of your Ism Schism game.” Anyway Bob gave Peter 50 % writer credits. Surprisingly the sleeve of the Definite Remasters has two significant mistakes in giving the text as “Good from the sky” instead of “God from the sky” and “hissing kissing game” instead of “ism schism game”.
Lead vocals and guitar by Bob Marley, harmonies and guitar by Peter Tosh, harmonies and percussion by Bunny Wailer.
