The Leaving of Liverpool

Farewell to Prince's Landing Stage, river Mersey, fare thee well
I am bound for California, a place I know right well

Refrein:
So fare thee well, my own true love,
when I return united we will be.
It's not the leavin' of Liverpool that grieves me,
but my darling when I think of thee

I am bound for Californiae by way of stormy Horn
I will write to thee a letter, love, when I am homeward bound

Refrein

I have shipped on a Yankee Clipper ship, Davy Crockett is her name
And Burgess is the captain of her and they say that she's a floating Hell

Refrein

I have sailed with Burgess once before, I think I know him well
If a man's a sailor he will get along, if not then he's sure in hell

Refrein

Farewell to lower Frederick Street, Ensign Terrace and Park Lane
I am bound away for to leave you and I'll never see you again

Refrein
