Leaving of Liverpool

1) Farewell to thee my own true love
I am going far away.
I am bound for Califor-ni-a
But I know that I'll return some day.

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

2) I am bound for California
by the way of the stormy Cape Horn.
And I will write thee a letter, love.
E'er that I be homeward bound.

Chorus

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

Chorus

Oh, the sun is on the harbour, love,
And I wish I could remain,
for I fear it may be some long time
e'er that I see thee again.

Chorus
