The leaving of Liverpool

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

So fare thee well my own tru love
for 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 hav shipped on a Yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
and the captain's name was Purgess
and they say that she's a floating hell

So fare thee well . . .

Oh the sun is on the harbour love
and I wish I could remain
for I know it will be a long long time
befor I see you again

So fare thee well . . .
