Jamaica Farewell - Lyrics by Jimmy Buffett


Lyrics
Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop
I took a trip on a sailing ship
But when I reached jamaica I made her stop
Chorus:
Now I'm sad to say
I'm on my way (on my way)I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down
My head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in kingston town
Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls sway to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I have been from maine to mexico
Chorus:
Still I'm sad to say
I'm on my way (on my way)I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down
My head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in kingston town
Yeah, robert g.
Down at the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Ackev rice, salt fish are nice
Oh the rum is fine anytime of year
Chorus:
Now I'm sad to say
I'm on my way (on my way)I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down
My head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in kingston town
Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop
I took a trip on a sailing ship
But when I reached jamaica I made her stop
Chorus:
Now I'm sad to say
I'm on my way (on my way)I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down
My head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in kingston town
I had to leave a little girl in kingston town
I had to leave a little girl in kingston town
On my way harry. holy cow. I don't know!
