lyrics Jamaican Farewell

Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship and 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 turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town
Sounds of laughter everywhere and the dancing girl swing to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico
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 turning around
I've had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town
Down at the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Akkisai sort fish are nice and the rum is fine any time a 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 turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town
Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship and 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 turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town
Sad to say I'm on my way won't be back for many a day
My heart is down my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town
