Jamaican Wake Song Lyrics For "Yu wrong fe send come call me"
There is a song that was / is sung at funerals in Jamaica (when filling the grave I think).
It's called: Yu wrong fe send come call me.
It refers to not having any rum to drink when the diggers are digging (I think).
My family would like to sing when filling up my grandad's grave in a couple of weeks.
The only version I can find is the Josey Wales one and the lyrics are not the ones I am looking for.
Can you help me please. The funeral is soon.Editor's Note
Seemed I overlooked this note from you...my humblest apologies.
I am sharing it on the site (and on our facebook fan page)right now and hope that someone who might be aware of this song (sounds like a folk song) responds via the comments link
