Jamaica Farewell - Kingston Town
Traditional - Harry Belafonte

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
When it 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 turning around
  I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And dancing girls swaying to and fro
I must declear my heart is there
Though I been from Main to Mexico

Down at the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
A key rice salt fish are nice
And the rum is fine any time of year
