How To Play

VERSE 1
C             F
Down the way, where the nights are gay
G                               C
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
Am                 Dm
I took a trip on a sailing ship
           G
And when I reached Jamaica
  C
I made a stop
 
CHORUS
         C              F
But I'm, sad to say I'm on my way
G                 C
Won't be back for many a day
Am                           F
My heart is down, my head is spinning around
         C              G       C
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
 
VERSE 2
C                   F
Sounds of laughter, everywhere
G                           C
And the dancing girls swing to and fro
C                 F
I must declare my heart is there
G                              C
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico
 
 
CHORUS
C                       F
But I'm, sad to say I'm on my way
 
G                 C
Won't be back for many a day
 
Am                            F
My heart is down, my head is spinning around
 
         G                      C
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
 
 
[Instrumentals]
C  F  G  C  Am  Dm7  G  C
 
 
C                   F
Down at the market, you can hear
 
G                             C
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
 
C                 F
'Akey' rice, salt fish are nice
 
G                       C
And the rum is good any time of year
 
 
CHORUS
        C              F
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
 
G                 C
Won't be back for many a day
 
Am                           Dm
My heart is down, my head is spinning around
 
C                       G           C
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
 
 
        C              F
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
 
G                 C
Won't be back for many a day
 
Am                           Dm7
My heart is down, my head is spinning around
 
         G                      C
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town...
