Jamaica Farewell - Kingston Town
Traditional - Harry Belafonte

(A)Down the way where the (D)nights are gay
And the
(E7)sun shines daily on the (A)mountain top
I took a trip on a
(D)sailing ship
When it
(E7)reached Jamaica I (A)made a stop

  But I’m sad to say, I’m
(D)on my way
(E7)Won’t be back for (A)many a day
  My heart is down, my head is
(D)turning around
  I had to
(E7)leave a little girl in (A)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
