Jamaica Farewell - Lyrics by Harry Belafonte


Lyrics
Down the way where the nights are gayand the sun shines daily on the mountain's top
I took a trip on a sailing shipand when I reached Jamaica I made a stop.
And I'm sad to say
I'm on my waywon't be back for many a daymy heart is downmy head is burning around
I've had to leave a little girl in the Kingston town.
Down at the market you can hearladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Akkisai sort fish are niceand the rhum are fine every time a year.
And I'm sad to say
I'm on my waywon't be back for many a daymy heart is downmy head is burning around
I've had to leave a little girl in the Kingston town.
Sounds of laughter every whereand the dancing girl swinging two and fro
I must declare my head is therethough I been from maine to Mexico.
And I'm sad to say
I'm on my waywon't be back for many a daymy heart is downmy head is burning around
I've had to leave a little girl in the Kingston town.
