Jamaica Farewell (CRD-2)   Don Williams


(G) Down the way where the (C) nights are gay,
And the (D)sun shines daily on the (G) mountain tops,
I took a trip on a (C) sailing ship,
And when I (D) reached Jamaica I (G) made a stop,

But I'm sad to say that I'm (Am) on my way,
(D7) Won't be back for (G) many a day,
My heart is down my head is (Am) turning around,
I had to (D7) leave a little girl in (G) Kingston town,

Down in the market (C) you can hear,
Ladies (D) cry out as on their (G) heads they bear,
Akai rice salt (C) fish are nice,
And the (D) rum is fine any (G) time of year,

But I'm sad to say that I'm (Am) on my way,
(D7) Won't be back for (G) many a day,
My heart is down my head is (Am) turning around,
I had to (D7) leave a little girl in (G) Kingston town,

Sounds of laughter (C) everywhere,
And the (D) dancing girls sway (G) to and fro',
I must declare my (C) heart is there,
Though I've (D) been from Maine to (G) Mexico,

But I'm sad to say that I'm (Am) on my way,
(D7) Won't be back for (G) many a day,
My heart is down my head is (Am) turning around,
I had to (D7) leave a little girl in (G) Kingston town.
