Jamaica Say You Will

Jackson Browne

 Jamaica was the lovely one I played her well    
 AmAm7DGD
As we lay in the tall grass where the shadows fell   
 GCC/BC/A
 Hiding from the children so they would not tell     
 AmAm7D
We would stay there untill her sister rang the evening bell
 GG7CGG7C
Jamaica say you will help me find a way to fill these empty hours
 GBmEmEm/DDCC/BC/AG/BD
 Say you  will     come again tomorrow                    
 D7GCC/BC/A
 The daughter of a captain on the rolling seas      
 AmAm7DGD
She would stare across the water  from the tree     
 GCC/BC/A
 Last time  he was home he held her on his knees     
 AmAm7D
And said the next time they would sail away  just where they please
 GG7CGG7C
Jamaica say you will help me find a way to   fill these lifeless sails
 GBmEmEm/DDCC/BC/A
 Stay untill            my ships can find the sea        

 CC/BC/AAmGG7CGC/BC/AAmGD
 GCC/BC/A
 Jamaica was a sweet young one I loved her true    
 AmAmDGD
She was a comfort and a mercy thru and thru      
 GCC/BC/A
 Hiding from this world together next thing I knew    
 AmAm7/DD
They had brought her things down to the bay    what could I do
 GG7CGG7C
Jamaica say you will help me find a way to   fill these sails and then
we'll
 GBmEmEm/DDCC/BC/AG
 Sail untill             our waters have run dry
