lirik lagu jamaica farewell – don williams

Loading...

(writer irving bergie aka lord burgess)

down the way, where the nights are gay
and the sun shines daily on the mountain top
i took a trip on a sailing ship
and when i reached jamaica
i made a stop.

but i’m, sad to say i’m on my way
won’t be back for many a day
my heart is down, my head is spinning around
i had to leave a little girl in kingston town.

sounds of laughter, everywhere
and the dancing girls swing to and fro
i must declare my heart is there
though i’ve been from maine to mexico.

but i’m, sad to say i’m on my way
won’t be back for many a day
my heart is down, my head is spinning around
i had to leave a little girl in kingston town.

— instrumental —

down at the market, you can hear
ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
`akey’ rice, salt fish are nice
and the rum is good any time of year

but i’m sad to say i’m on my way
won’t be back for many a day
my heart is down, my head is spinning around
i had to leave a little girl in kingston town

but i’m sad to say i’m on my way
won’t be back for many a day
my heart is down, my head is spinning around
i had to leave a little girl in kingston town…
