OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica, I made a stop

Four ladies promenade around the ring
Swing your man and promenade again
My heart is down; my head is turning around
I had to meet a little girl in Kingston town


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands go
Sides rollaway, make a wave you know
Swing thru tonight and let the boy run right
Pass thru then you wheel and deal and zoom
New center two square thru three hands
Swing the corner, promenade the land
My heart is down; my head is turning around
I had to meet a little girl in Kingston town


TAG

My heart is down; my head is turning around
I had to meet a little girl in Kingston town

Jamaica Farewell
 
 

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.
