    Harry BELAFONTE - Jamaica farewell
    Down the way where the nights are gay
    And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
    I took a trip on a sailing ship
    And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop

    "Jamaica Farewell" est une chanson folklorique de style jamaïcain sur les beautés des îles des Indes occidentales. La chanson est d'abord apparue sur l'album à succès phénoménal de Harry Belafonte, Calypso.
    Les paroles de la chanson ont été écrites par Lord Burgess (Irving Burgie), un auteur-compositeur américain né à moitié Barbadan.

    Down the way where the nights are gay
    And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
    I took a trip on a sailing ship
    And 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
    Down the market you can hear
    Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
    'Akey' rice, salt fish are nice
    And the rum is fine any time of 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 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
    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 mountain top
    I took a trip on a sailing ship
    And 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
