Across The Western Ocean - Lyrics & Chords


Oh the  times are hard and the wages low,
A melia, where you  bound to ?
The  Rocky  Mountains is my home,
Across the  Western  Ocean.

That land of promise there you'll see,
Amelia, where you bound to ?
I'm bound across that Western Sea,
It's time for us to leave her.

To Liverpool I'll take my way,
Leave her, bullies, leave her,
To Liverpool, that Yankee school,
It's time for us to leave her.

There's Liverpool Pat with his tarpaulin hat,
Amelia, where you bound to ?
And Yankee John, the packet rat,
It's time for us to leave her.

Beware these packet ships, I pray,
Amelia, where you bound to ?
They steal your stores and clothes away,
Across the Western Ocean.
