Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Jamaica Farewell  Harry Belefonte

D[A]own the way, where the n[D]ights are gay,
And the s[A]un shines d[E7]aily on the m[A]ountain top,
I took a trip on a s[D]ailing ship,
And when I re[A]ached Ja[E7]maica, I made a s[A]top.

CHORUS:
     But I'm s[A]ad to say, I'm [Bm]on my way,
     W[E7]on't be back for m[A]any a day,
     My heart is down, my head is t[Bm]urning around,
     I had to l[A]eave a little g[E7]irl in Kingston t[A]own.

S[A]ounds of laughter e[D]verywhere,
And the [A]dancing [E7]girls sway [A]to and fro,
[A]I must declare, my [D]heart is there,
'Though I've [A]been from [E7]Maine to [A]Mexico.

CHORUS:
     But I'm s[A]ad to say, I'm [Bm]on my way,
     W[E7]on't be back for m[A]any a day,
     My heart is down, my head is t[Bm]urning around,
     I had to l[A]eave a little g[E7]irl in Kingston t[A]own.

D[A]own at the market, [D]you can hear,
Ladies [A]cry out [E7]while on their [A]heads they bear,
[A]Akie rice, and the [D]fish are nice,
And the [A]rum is [E7]fine any [A]time of year.

CHORUS:
     But I'm s[A]ad to say, I'm [Bm]on my way,
     W[E7]on't be back for m[A]any a day,
     My heart is down, my head is t[Bm]urning around,
     I had to l[A]eave a little g[E7]irl in Kingston t[A]own.
