    Lyrics

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

    (chorus)
    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 a dancing girl swings to and fro
    I must declare my heart is there
    Though I've been maine to Mexico

    (chorus)
    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 at the market you can hear
    Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
    Ackie rice, salt fish are nice
    And the rhum is fine any time a year

    (chorus)
    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

    (chorus)
    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.
