Bob falleció un 11 de Mayo de 1981 víctima de un cáncer encefálico convirtiéndose en una leyenda. Por aquel entonces, tenía 36 años, 11 hijos, 13 discos y millones de seguidores (entre los que se encontraba Mick Jagger)

Fue enterrado en un mausoleo en Nine Miles, Jamaica, junto a una Gibson les Paul, un cogollo de marihuana, una pelota de fútbol y una biblia.

La canción “Redemption song” fue el último single de Bob Marley en 1980 y la última canción que cantó en directo ese mismo año en Pittsburgh antes de fallecer.

BOB MARLEY – REDEMPTION SONG

Old pirates, yes, they rob I sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I from the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong by the hand of the almighty.
We forward in this generation triumphantly.
Wont you help to sing these songs of freedom?
cause all I ever have: redemption songs; redemption songs.
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
none but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look! oh
Some say it’s just a part of it: We’ve got to fulfill the book.
Wont you help to sing these songs of freedom?
cause all I ever have: redemption songs; redemption songs.

cause all I ever have: redemption songs
All I ever had: Redemption songs these songs of freedom
