Meaning

These lines come from Bob Marley’s Crazy Baldheads. “Baldheads” refers to whites and non-Rastafarians — those who do not have natural hair or dreadlocks, and are thus suspected of siding with the “exploiters.”

Marley’s song points out that his people have done all the work to build up Jamaica, while the oppressors simply take advantage of their labor.

“I and I build the cabin
I and I plant the corn
Didn’t my people before me
slave for this country?
Now you look at me with a scorn
Then you eat up all my corn”
