Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top

Boys star right and you turn it on around
Left allemande and weave around the ring
Oh well, 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 pretty girl in Kingston Town


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you'll promenade her halfway round that ring
Down the middle star thru, California twirl
Right & left thru you know
Veer left, ferris wheel around you go
Come on square thru three, that corner swing
Swing corner one and promenade the ring
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a pretty girl in Kingston Town

Jamaica Farewell Lyrics ID: 471

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

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 head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

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
Aki rice, salt fish are nice
And the rum is fine anytime 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 head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

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

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls sway to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico

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 head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

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 took a trip on a sailing ship
But 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

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

Lyrics by Lord Irving Burgess.
Recorded by Harry Belafonte.
