Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

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

Left allemande, dosado you own
Left allemande and weave around there you roam
Oh, well, 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 that pretty girl in Kingston Town


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway round
Square thru and get me four hands round
All the way then a right & left thru
Veer left, couples circulate you do
Half tag, scoot back, corner you swing
You take her and promenade that ring
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave that 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.
