The leaving of Liverpool


Farewell to Princess landing stage
River Mersey fare thee well
I am bound for Californiay
A place I know right well

So fare thee well my own true love
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 a yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
And Burgess is the cap’tain of her
And they say that she’s a floating shame

I have been with Burgess once before
And I think I know him well
If a man is a seaman he can get along
But if not then he’s sure in hell.

Oh the sun is 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.
