The leaving of Liverpool

 
         G        Am       C       G
Fare you well the Prince's landing stage,
              C    G   D
River Mersey, fare you well.
    G      Am   C     G
I'm off to Cali-forni-a,
          D7         G 
a place I know right well.
   D        D        C        G 
So fare you well, my own true love,
     Em          Hm            D7
when I return un-ited we shall be,
             G          Am             C       G
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
                      D7       G
but my darling when I think of you.
  
2. I'm off to California
by the way of the stormy Cape Horn,
I will send to you a letter, love,
when I am homeward bound.
So fare you well, my own true love,
when I return united we shall be,
It's not the leaving of Liverpool
that grieves me,
but my darling when I think of you.
  
3. Farewell to Lower Frederick Street,
Anson Terrace and Park Lane,
farewell, it will be some long time
before I see you again.
So fare you well, my own true love,
when I return united we shall be,
It's not the leaving of Liverpool
that grieves me,
but my darling when I think of you.
  
4. I've shipped on a Yankee clipper ship,
Davy Crockett is her name,
and Burgess is the captain of her,
and they say she's a floating shame.
So fare you well, my own true love,
when I return united we shall be,
It's not the leaving of Liverpool
that grieves me,
but my darling when I think of you.
  
5. The tug is waiting at the pierhead
to take us down the stream,
our sails are loose
and our anchor secure,
so I'll bid you good-bye once more.
So fare you well, my own true love,
when I return united we shall be,
It's not the leaving of Liverpool
that grieves me,
but my darling when I think of you.
  
6. I'm bound away to leave you,
good-bye, my love, good-bye,
there ain't but one thing that
grieves me, that's leaving you behind.
So fare you well, my own true love,
when I return united we shall be,
It's not the leaving of Liverpool
that grieves me,
but my darling when I think of you.
