Jamaica Farewell

This song is by Caetano Veloso and appears on the album A Foreign Sound (2004).

Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop
I look a trip on a sailling ship
And when I 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
Down at the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Akee rice, salt fish are nice
And the rum is fine any time of year
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is downs, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
Sounds of laughter every where
And the dancing girls swaying to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Thoug I've been from Maine to Mexico
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
Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop
I look a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached
Jamaica I made a stop
But I'm said 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
