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 that they would not tell
We would stay there till 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 sea She would stare across the water from the tree Last time he was home he held her on his knee 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 cab find the sea
3rd Verse Jamaica was a sweet young one, and I loved her true She was a comfort and a mercy through and through Hiding from this world togethor, next thing I knew She 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 then we'll sail until our waters have run dry
Repeat Intro to end.
Because this song was written on the piano, it doesn't translate easily. I have also played it with a capo on the third fret (E chord gets fingered as a C etc.), but I like the depth of the bass runs better in the first position. Enjoy.
