Jamaica Farewell Bearbeiten


trad. Bearb.: mjchael

Verse 1
[A]Down the way, where the[D]nights are gay,
and the[E]sun shines[7]daily on the[A]mountain top,
I[A]took a trip on a[D]sailing ship,
And when I[E]reached Jamaica, I[A]made a stop.

But I'm[A]sad to say, I'm[Bm]on my way,
[E]Won't be[7]back for[A]many a day,
My[A]heart is down, my head is [Bm]turning around,
I had to[A]leave a little [E7]girl in[A]Kingston town.
Verse 2
[A]Sounds of laughter[D]everywhere,
And the[E]dancing[7]girls sway [A]to and fro,[1]
I[A]must declare, my[D]heart is there,
Though[E]I've been from Maine to[A]Mexico.
Verse 3
[A]Down at the market,[D]you can hear,
Ladies[E]cry out[7]while on their[A]heads they bear,
[A]Aki rice,[Bm]swordfish are nice,
And the [E]rum is fine any[A]time of year.
