Oh Jamaica Lyrics

Oh Jamaica, oh Jamaica
Oh Jamaica, you're always on my mind
Oh Jamaica, oh Jamaica
Oh Jamaica, you’re always on my mind

Jamaica, men have called you since
Columbus sailed the shores
From John Hawkins to Henry
Morgan and many more
They all loved you for your
Beauty and your wealth
But cared nothing for your
Welfare or your health
Now you're a woman that has
Fallen in the dust
But your children will help you
Because they must

Oh Jamaica, oh Jamaica
Oh Jamaica, you're always on my mind

From Kingston to Mo Bay
Discontentment is the order of the day
And like your sisters that
Are in the Caribbean
Disaffection from rejection can be seen
Your many lovers were deceivers
From the start
Now your sons and daughters are
Grieved to the heart

Oh Jamaica, oh Jamaica
Oh Jamaica, you’re always on my mind
Oh Jamaica, oh Jamaica
Oh Jamaica, you're always on my mind
