Paroles :

Farewell to Prince’s Landing Stage

River Mersey, fare thee well

I am bound for California

A place I know right well.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.

So fare thee well my own true love

I am going far away

I am bound to Californiay

But I know I will return some day.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.

Well I shipped a Yankee sailin’ ship,

Davy Crockett is her name.

And Burgess is the captain of her

And I know she’s a floating hell.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.

Oh the sun is on the harbour love

An’I wish I could remain,

Cause it will be a very long long time

Well before I see you again.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.

I’m bound off for California

By the way of stormy Cape Horn

And I’m bound to write you a letter, love

When I am homeward bound.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.

I have shipped with Burgess once before

And I think I know him well

If a man’s a seaman, he can get along

If not, then he’s sure in Hell.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.

Farewell to lower Frederick Street

Ensign Terrace and Park Lane

For I think it will be a long, long time

Before I see you again.

So fare thee well my own true love

And when I return, united we will be

It’s not the leaving of Liverpool that greeves me,

But my darling, when I think of thee.
