lyrics

Farewell to you, my own true love,
I am going far, far away
I am bound for California,
Though I know that I'll return someday

CHORUS:
So fare thee well, my own true love
When I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that's grieving me
But my darling when I think of thee

I am bound on a Yankee sailing ship,
Davy Crockett is her name,
Her Captain's name is Burgess,
And they say that she's a floating shame

I have sailed with Burgess once before
I think I know him well
If a man's a sailor, he will get along
If he’s not, then he's sure in Hell

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