The Leaving Of Liverpool


So fare thee well my own true love
And when I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darling when I think of thee.

Farewell to you my own true love
I am going far away
I am bound for Californiay
And I know that I'll return some day.

So fare thee well my own true love
And when I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darling when I think of thee.

The sun is on the harbour now
And I wish I could remain
But I know it will be some long time
Before I see you again.

So fare thee well my own true love
And when I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darling when I think of thee.

I have shipped on a Yankee sailing ship;
Davy Crockett is her name.
And Burgess is the captain of her,
And they say she is a floating hell.

So fare thee well my own true love
And when I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darling when I think of thee.
