|The singer is preparing to sail from Liverpool. He bids farewell to the city and most especially to his sweetheart. He describes the difficult conditions he will face aboard the Davy Crockett under Captain Burgess The Davy Crockett was apparently a fairly well-known clipper; Doerflinger provides two references for her history.|
Farewell to you my own true love I am going far away I am bound for Ca-li-for-ni-ay And I know that I'll return some day. CHOR: So fare thee well my own true love And 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.
The sun is on the harbour now And I wish I could remain But I know it will be some long time Before I see you again.
