OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain, why you turn 'em you know
Join up hands and circle left around the ring you go
Ladies roll away and circle left that way
Ladies roll away and circle left I say
You'll do a left allemande come home and dosado
Left allemande and promenade your own
Well my heart is down, my head is turning around
I left a little girl down in Kingston town


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head 2 you square thru it's 4 hands you go
With that corner girl you'll do a dosado
You curlique, and now you scoot back and roll
A right & left thru and turn that girl you know
Come on and dive thru and square thru 3/4 around
Swing corner girl and promenade the ring
Well my heart is down, my head is turning around
I left a little girl down 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.
