Jamaica, Say You Will - Lyrics

Jamaica was the sweet, young thing, I played her well
As we lay there in the tall grass, where the shadows fell
Hiding from the children, so they would not tell
We would lay 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

She was 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 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 thing, I loved her true
She was a comfort and a mercy through and through
Hiding from this world together, next thing I knew
They brought her 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
