Down the way where the nights are gay 
And the sun shines gaily on the mountain top 
I took a trip on a sailing ship 
But 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 swaying 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

Down at the market you can hear ladies 
Cry out while on their heads they bear
Ackey rice salt fish are nice 
And the run is good anytime of the 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
Sad to say I'm on my way...
