Jamaican Farewell

Jamaican Farewell

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
