NASSAU TOWN

Tellin' old frown town goodbye
Tellin' old frown town goodbye
I've found a smilin' island town
And I'm a-goin' down 'cause there ain't no frowns 'round Nassau Town

The willow weeps and envys me
Willow weeps and envys me
'Cause he's got roots here and cannot leave
And mine are bound for the ground of Nassau Town

Wind blow
Through my lonesome clothes

So, so long, I'm Bahama bound
So long, I'm Bahama bound
'Cause my heart's already down
Walkin' around and a-settlin' down in Nassau Town
Learnin' to smile and live and love in Nassau Town
