Down the way where the nights are gay

And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop

I took a trip on a sailing ship

But when i reached jamaica i made her stop

Chorus:Now i'm sad to say

I'm on my way

I 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

Sounds of laughter everywhere

And the dancing girls sway to and fro

I must declare my heart is there

Though i have been from maine to mexico

Chorus:Still i'm sad to say

I'm on my way

I 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

Ackev rice salt fish are nice

Oh the rum is fine anytime of year

Chorus:Now i'm sad to say

I'm on my way

I 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 took a trip on a sailing ship

But when i reached jamaica i made her stop

Chorus:Now i'm sad to say

I'm on my way

I 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

Chorus:Now i'm sad to say

I'm on my way

I 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
