Fun kids song Jamaica Farewell: chords and words

 

Jamaica Farewell

A                                    D
Down the way where the nights are gay,
              E                                   A
And the sun shines brightly on the mountain top,
A                        D
I took a trip on a sailing ship,
                   E                          A
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop.

Chorus:

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

 

Sounds of laughter everywhere,
And the dancers swinging to and fro,
I must declare that my heart is there,
Though I’ve been from Maine to Mexico.

 

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

    There is another verse, youall.
    Sounds of laughter everywhere
    and the dancing girls swing too and fro
    I must declare my heart is there
    though I’ve been from Maine to Mexico.
