The Dubliners: “Leaving of Liverpool”

Farewell to you, my own true love,
I am sailing far, far away
I am bound for Californiay,
And I know that I’ll return someday

So fare thee well, my own true love,
For 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

2. I have shipped on a Yankee sailing ship,
Davy Crockett is her name,
And her Captain’s name was Burgess,
And they say that she’s a floating shame.


3. It’s me second trip with Burgess on the Crocket
And I think I know him well
If a man’s a seaman he’ll get along
But if not then he’s sure in hell.

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