Jamaica Farewell

Song Author Lord Burgess Performer: Don Williams Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Down the way where the [F]nights are gay
And the [G7]sun shines gaily on the [C]mountain top
I took a trip on a [F]sailing ship
But when I [G7]reached Jamaica I [C]made a stop

But I'm sad to say I'm [Dm]on my way
[G7]Won't be back for [C]many a day
My heart is down my head is [Dm]spinning around
I had to [G7]leave a little girl in [C]Kingston town

Sounds of laughter [F]everywhere
And the [G7]dancing girls swaying [C]to and fro
I must declare my [F]heart is there
Though I've [G7]been from Maine to [C]Mexico

Repeat #2

Down at the market [F]you can hear
Ladies [G7]cry out while on their [C]heads they bear
Ackee rice salt [F]fish are nice
And the [G7]rum is good any[C]time of year

But I'm sad to say I'm [Dm]on my way
[G7]Won't be back for [C]many a day
My heart is down my head is [Dm]spinning around
I had to [G7]leave a little girl in [C]Kingston town

But I'm sad to say I'm [Dm]on my way
[G7]Won't be back for [C]many a day
My heart is down my head is [Dm]spinning around
I had to [G7]leave a little girl in [C]Kingston town


Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines gaily on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship
But when I reached Jamaica I made a stop

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down my head is spinning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls swaying to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico

Repeat #2

Down at the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Ackee rice salt fish are nice
And the rum is good anytime of year

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down my head is spinning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down my head is spinning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
