    Lyrics

    (Writer Irving Bergie aka Lord Burgess)

    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 spinning around
    I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town.

    Sounds of laughter, everywhere
    And the dancing girls swing 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Down at the market, you can hear
    Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
    'Akey' rice, salt fish are nice
    And the rum is good 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 spinning around
    I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

    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...
