The Leaving of Liverpool

Melody - Melody -

1. Farewell to you, my own true love
I am going far away
I am bound for California
But 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.
  2. 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.

3. Oh the sun is on the harbor love
And I wish I could remain
For I know it will be some long time
before I see you again
