Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines gaily on the mountain top
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 spinning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls swaying 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
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down my head is spinning 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
Ackey rice salt fish are nice
And the run is good anytime of the year

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 spinning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
Sad to say I'm on my way...
