A very reliable source....not the Jamaican Gleaner, but his own son Owen & Jim Obasa (close friend of the Ellis family) have confirmed that Alton Ellis passed away at 4:45AM on October 11, 2008.

Unbelievable.

Thank you, Alton. Thank you for all the music that you've performed that has changed the lives of more than you could ever fathom!


Why birds follow spring
Like the sun follows the rainbow
Now why some people sing
When others bow their heads in sorrow
But oh, why some trees are so tall
While others they stay small
Why's yesterday like today
It follows tomorrow


But oh whoah, lala ladada la
Lalala da dadada laaaa laaaa

Oh, why some trees are so tall
While others they stay small

Why some trees, oooohh, are so tall
While others they stay small
Why's yesterday like today
It follows tomorrow

Why, ladadadada, why, somebody please

Why some trees are so tall
While others they stay small
La ladada la la lala
Laa lalala la la lala
Ladadad la la lalala....
