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
