Leaving of Liverpool

Farewell to you my own true love
I'm sailing far far away
I'm bound for California
and I know that I'll return some day

So fare thee well, my own true love
When I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grievs me
But my darling when I think of thee

I have signed on a Yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
And Burgess is the captian of her
And they say she's a floating Hell

Oh the sun is on the harbor, love
And I wish I could remain
For I know it will be a long, long time
until I see you again
