Jamaica Say You Will

Jackson Browne

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

 Jamaica was a sweet young one I loved her true    
She was a comfort and a mercy thru and thru      
 Hiding from this world together next thing I knew    
They 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
 Sail untill             our waters have run dry
