LEAVING OF LIVERPOOL (Trad sailor's song c: 1865) perf: Dubliners, Gaelic Storm, Seekers, Pogues et. al. Farewell to Prince's Landing Stage River Mersey, fare thee well I am bound for California, A place I know right well Chorus: 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'm bound off for California By the way of stormy Cape Horn And I'm bound to write you a letter, love When I am homeward bound (Chorus) I have signed on a Yankee clipper ship Davy Crockett is her name And Burgess is the Captain of her And they that say she's a floating shame (Chorus) I have shipped with Burgess once before And I think I know him well If a man's a sailor, he can get along If not, then he's sure in Hell (Chorus) Farewell to lower Frederick Street Ensign Terrace and Park Lane For I think it will be a long, long time Before I see you again (Chorus) Oh the sun is on the harbour, love And I wish I could remain For I know it will be a long, long time Till I see you again (Chorus) (Contributed by =Aemoggs= - May 2009)
