about

A kind, mysterious woman I once knew, wrote beautiful poetry and never spoke much about her past ...

lyrics

Oh Jamaica

Was Jamaica dealing or was it political
the judge say girl how do you plead
"Sir, suddenly the schoolyard
was a storm of soldiers but I was just
teaching the children how to read"

Chorus:

Oh Jamaica when the fierce wind blows
it'll carry you a thousand miles away
before the jailer even knows

Cash in a brief case crimes and rumors
Papa knows someone in the government
she was helping the helpless Officer
that's all I know to be true
a simple life a wall of books
unsuspected on the Boardwalk now
a plant in a corner of a small apartment
maybe two

Chorus

How did you get away from the authorities
they gave you 25 years you were out in a few short weeks
and they flew you to California with the diplomats
and the governor and the generals they all tipped their hats

Let's rejoice in the freedom made
from the hurricanes of Autumn
the judge he threw away the keys
and you reached right up and caught 'em

Oh Jamaica Oh Jamaica
