Jamaica Farewell  Harry Belafonte

I would've done the solo for the beginning but I don't know how to format it..:P
I'm new. Anyways, this is a great song and I am 99.99% that these chords are
accurate. Remember...NO CAPO! Unless you need to adjust to match with your voice.
[G]Down away where n[C]ights are gay.
And the s[G]unshine's [D7]daily on the [G]mountain top.
[G]I took a trip on a [C]sailing ship.
When I [G]reached Jam[D7]aica I [G]made a stop but I'm.
Chorus: [G]Sad to say I'm [Am]on my way.
[D7]Won't be back for [G]many a day.
[G]My heart is down my head is t[Am]urning around.
I had to [G]leave a little [D7]girl in [G]Kingston town.
[G]Sounds of laughter [C]everywhere.
And the [G]dancing [D7]girls swaying [G]to and fro.
[G]I must declare my [C]heart is there,
though I've [G]been from [D7]Maine to [G]Mexico but I'm.
[G]Down at the market [C]you can hear,
ladies [G]cry out [D7]while on their [G]heads they bare.
[G]Akey rice and [C]fish are nice,
and the [G]rum is [D7]fine any[G]time of year but I'm.
