The Leaving of Liverpool

Farewell to you my own true love
I am going far away
I am bound for California
And I know that I'll return someday

So fare thee well my own true love
For when I return united we will be
It's not the leavin' of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darlin' when I think of thee

I have shipped on a yankee sailing ship
Davey Crocket is her name
And Burgess is the captain of her
And they say that she's a floating shame

So fare thee well my own true love
For when I return united we will be
It's not the leavin' of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darlin' when I think of thee

Oh the sun is shining on the harbour, love
And I wish I could remain
For I know it will be a long, long time
Before I see you again

So fare thee well my own true love
For when I return united we will be
It's not the leavin' of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darlin' when I think of thee

So fare thee well my own true love
For when I return united we will be
It's not the leavin' of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darlin' when I think of thee

But my darlin' when I think of thee
