DOWN THE ROAD (CARIBBEAN BLUES) [Traditional Lyrics]

Mama got the news and you know she wild
With excitement trying to protect the child
He was hardened, he do not feel,
In the prison charnel they are bound to heal

Tommy King that made the attack
And Sims with a cutlase behind his back
Apprehended immediately
And taken to the Royal Constabulary

Down the road, momma, run down the road,
Tie up your dress and run down the road,
I head a voice calling from afar
Saying, Son you did not listen to your Mother
Gone, gone, too late to realize
In the royal jail you'll be penalized

Mama got the news she took it to heart,
From us she suddenly fell apart
Her actions were true she was as good as gold
But her kids they run her out of this world

Tommy you should bite your fingernails
You are well six months in the royal jail
No time for the carnival
Coz everbody knows you as a criminal

Down the road, momma, run down the road,
Tie up your dress and run down the road,
I head a voice calling from afar
Saying, Son you did not listen to your Mother
Gone, gone, too late to realize
In the royal jail you'll be penalized
