                Jamaica Farewell

 

       C                                     F

1. Down the way where the lights a gay

                   C               G                   C

    and the sun shines daily on the mountain top.

                                 F

    I took a trip an a sailing ship

                            C                G           C

    and when we reached Jamaica, I made a stop.

 

              C                      G

But I`m sad to say, I`m  on my way,

  G                          C

won`t be back for many a day,

        C                                      F

my heart is down, my head is turning around,

              C                  G      C

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town.

 

       C                           F

2. Down a the market you can hear

                C          G                 C

    ladies cry out what on the heads their bear.

                                    F

    Haki, rice, salt and fish are nice

                   C               G           C

    and the rum tastes fine any time of year. + CHORUS

 

       C                            F

3. Sounds of laughter everywhere,

                    C          G            C

    and the dancing girls sway to and fro.

                                    F

    I must declare my heart is there,

                             C               G            C

    though I have been from Maine to Mexico. + CHORUS

 

4. = 1 .  + CHORUS
