Jamaica Will Break Your Heart
(Fred Tackett)
 
As I try to tell this story of crystal sands and love and glory
I am reminded by new friends
Of how it was for me
The sun and herbs did rule the day
At night we danced till the moon went away
I always thought that all was right
'cause never ever did we fight
 
Everybody smiles and sings
Jamaica will break your heart, boy
Jamaica will break your heart, boy, boy
 
Those loving precious hours
Sacred as the flowers
That seemed to bloom as if by chance
An honor to our passing dance
I always told her I'm not worthy
She would laugh and say don't worry
There ain't nothing here to prove
Ain't no mountain to be moved
 
Everybody smiles and sings
Jamaica will break your heart, boy
Jamaica will break your heart, boy, boy
 
How this sorry state came to be
You know it ain't no mystery
A blue eyed boy from 'cross the sea
Erased our love and history
He bought the land he bought the sand
One day she took my hand
You know I've got to live she said
And moved into his flowery bed.
 
Everybody smiles and sings
Jamaica will break your heart, boy
Jamaica will break your heart, boy, boy
 
I'm standing now by foreign streams
Contemplating foreign dreams
What was now is now the past
Who was first is not outcast
I don't know when but soon, someday
She's gonna let me come back to stay
And there beside the turquoise sea
My love will be returned to me
 
Everybody smiles and sings
Jamaica will break your heart, boy
Jamaica will break your heart, boy, boy
