Leaving of Liverpool

Farewell the Prince's Landing Stage
River Mersey, fare thee well
I'm off to California
A place I know right well.

So fare thee well, my own true 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 have shipped on board a Yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
And her Captain's name was Burgess
And they say that she's a floating hell.

So fare thee well, my own true 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.

Oh, the ship is in the harbor, 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 leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darling when I think of thee.
