Today is another country music day for me. My all time favorite has to be Don’t Cry Joni. A close second is Jamaican Farewell. What I love about these kind of songs is the focus on lyrics and singing and soft melody. Sharing the lyrics for you.
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 CHORUS: 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 turning around I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town Sounds of laughter everywhere And the dancing girls swaying to and fro I must declare that my heart is there Though I've been from Maine to Mexico CHORUS Down at the market you can hear Ladies cry out while on their head they bear Ackie rice and salt fish is nice And the rum is good any time of year
