The Leaving Of Liverpool

The Leaving Of Liverpool

Gaelic Storm

Fare thee well to Prince's Landing Stage.
Mersey River, fare thee well.
Well, I am bound for California, but I know that I'll return someday.

Chorus:
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.

Oh, I have signed on the yankee sailin' ship.
Davy Crockett is her name.
And Burgess is the captain of her, and they say that she's a floatin? shame.

Chorus
Oh, I have sailed with this Burgess once before, and I think that I know him quite well.
For if a man is a sailor, he can get along. If not, he's in a floating Hell

Chorus
The sun is on the harbor, love.
And I wish that I could be thain.
Because I know it will be some long, long time before we see you again.
