First Verse
    E                                       A
Jamaica was the lovely one, I played her well
E/G#        F#m                 F#m/B                   E   A/B
As we lay in the tall grass, where the shadows fell
E                                                     A
Hiding from the children so that they would not tell
E/G#                 F#m                                F#m7
We would stay there till her sister rang the evening bell
             E    E7   A
Jamaica say you will, help me find
    E       E7   A
A way   to    fill, these empty hours
E         G#m/D#   C#m   C#m/B             A      E/G#  B7
Say       you         will,     come again tomorrow

2nd Verse

The daughter of a captain on the rolling sea
She would stare across the water from the tree
Last time he was home he held her on his knee
Said the next time they would sail away
Just where they pleased
Jamaica say you will, help me find
A way to fill, these lifeless sails
And stay until my ships cab find the sea


-0----------------0------------ 0---------2----|

Then repeat intro

3rd Verse
Jamaica was a sweet young one, and I loved her true
She was a comfort and a mercy through and through
Hiding from this world togethor, next thing I knew
She had brought her things, down to the bay
What could I do
Jamaica say you will, help me find
A way to fill, these sails
And then we'll sail until our waters have run dry

Repeat Intro to end.

Because this song was written on the piano, it doesn't
translate easily.  I have also played it with a capo on the
third fret  (E chord gets fingered as a C etc.), but I like the
depth of the bass runs better in the first position.
