Jamaica was the lovely one
I played her well
As we lay in the tall grass
Where the shadows fell
Hiding from the children
So they would not tell
We would stay there
'Til her sister rang
The evening bell

Jamaica, say you will
Help me find a way to fill
These empty hours
Say you will
Come again tomorrow

The daughter of a captain
On the rolling seas
She would stare across
The water from the trees
Last time he was home
He held her on his knees
And said, the next time
They would sail away
Just where they pleased

Jamaica, say you will
Help me find a way to fill
These lifeless sails
And stay until
My ships can find the sea

Jamaica was a sweet young one
I loved her true
She was a comfort
And a mercy through and through
Hiding from this world together
Next thing I knew
We had brought her things
Down to the bay, what could I do

Jamaica, say you will
Help me find a way to fill
These sails
And we will sail until
Our waters have run dry
