Jamaican Farewell

** "Songbook" Songbook.JamaicanFarewell -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Lord Burgess[1][2]



Performed: Kingston Trio, Harry Belafonte, Roger Whittaker

C F
Down the way, where the nights are gay
G7 C
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
F
I took a trip on a sailing ship
G7 C
And when I reached Jamaica, I made a stop
 
Chorus:
Dm
But I'm sad to say, I'm on my way
G7 C
Won't be back for many a day
Dm
My heart is down, my head is turning around
G7 C
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
 
F
Sounds of laughter everywhere
G7 C
And the dancing girls swaying to and fro
F
I must confess my heart is there
G7 C
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico
 
Chorus.
 
F
Down at the market, you can hear
G7 C
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
F
Ackee rice, salt fish are nice
G7 C
And the rum tastes fine any time of year
