The Byrds   Jamaica Say You Willwritten by  Jackson Browne

G    G/F#    Em     D      C

G                            C             C/B C/A
Jamaica was the lovely one I played her well
      Am              Am7   D                 G     D
As we lay in the tall grass where the shadows fell
G                                C           C/B   C/A
Hiding from the children so they would not tell
          Am                    Am7            D
We would stay there untill her sister rang the evening bell
         G  G7  C                   G   G7 C
Jamaica say you will help me find a way to fill these empty hours
G   Bm   Em  Em/D D          C  C/B C/A       G/B       D
Say you  will     come again tomorrow
D7  G                            C          C/B   C/A
The daughter of a captain on the rolling seas
           Am              Am7    D        G       D
She would stare across the water  from the tree
G                                  C          C/B  C/A
Last time  he was home he held her on his knees
             Am                   Am7              D
And said the next time they would sail away  just where they please
        G   G7  C                   G   G7  C
Jamaica say you will help me find a way to   fill these lifeless sails
G    Bm  Em      Em/D     D                  C    C/B  C/A
Stay untill            my ships can find the sea

C   C/B   C/A  Am   G  G7    C   G    C/B   C/A  Am   G    D

G                               C            C/B C/A
Jamaica was a sweet young one I loved her true
          Am            Am    D         G       D
She was a comfort and a mercy thru and thru
G                               C               C/B C/A
Hiding from this world together next thing I knew
         Am                             Am7/D  D
They had brought her things down to the bay    what could I do
        G   G7  C                   G   G7   C
Jamaica say you will help me find a way to   fill these sails and then
G     Bm Em       Em/D      D                C     C/B  C/A    G
Sail untill             our waters have run dry
