Jamaica Farewell Lyrics by Sam Cooke

 

Jamaica Farewell by Sam Cooke


Down the way where the night are gay
And the sun shines dearly on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town
Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls swing to and fro
I must declare my love too is there
Though I've from Maine to Mexico
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
I won't be back for many a days
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town
Down at the market you can hear
Ladies crying out while on their heads they bear
[Unverified] salt fish on ice and
The rum is fine any time of year
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
I won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my heart is turning around
I had to leave a girl in Kingston Town
