Leaving Of Liverpool - Lyrics & Chords

 

Farew ell to you, my  own true  love,
D7 
I am going far a way.
I am  bound for Cal - i -  for - ni -  a,
D7 
But I know that I'll retu rn some  day.

Chorus:

So  fare you well my  own true  love,
And when I return, united we will  be.
It's not the le aving of Liverpool that  grieves  me
D7 
But my darling, it's when I  think of  thee.

I'm off to  California
By way of the stormy Cape Horn,
And I will send you a letter, love,
When I am homeward bound.

I've shipped on a Yankee clipper ship,
Davy Crockett is her name,
And Burgess  is the captain of her
And they say  she is a floating hell.

I'm bound away to leave you,
Goodbye,  my love, goodbye.
There ain't but one thing that grieves me,
That's leaving you behind.

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