C C/G F G C C/G x2

Verse
C                  C/G  F
Down the way where the nights are gay
        G                       C             C/G
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
C             C/G  F
I took a trip on a sailing ship
           G               C              C/G
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop
Chorus
C              C/G Dm
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
G             C                C/G
Won't be back for many a day
C             C/G Dm
My heart is down, my head is turning around
G                               C              C/G
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
C C/G

Verse
C              C/G F
Down at the market you can hear
G                             C                C/G
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
C           C/G  F
Akey' rice and salt fish are nice
        G               C              C/G
And the rum is fine any time of year

Chorus
C              C/G Dm
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
G             C                C/G
Won't be back for many a day
C             C/G Dm
My heart is down, my head is turning around
G                               C              C/G
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
C C/G

Verse
C            C/G   F
Sounds of laughter everywhere
        G                     C          C/G
And the dancing girls swaying to and fro
C            C/G  F
I must declare my heart is there
G                              C       C/G
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico
Chorus
C              C/G Dm
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
G             C                C/G
Won't be back for many a day
C             C/G Dm
My heart is down, my head is turning around
G                               C              C/G
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
