The Leaving Of Liverpool

This song is by Gaelic Storm and appears on the album Gaelic Storm (1998) and on the compilation Special Reserve (2003).

Fare thee well to Prince's Landing Stage
Mersey River, fare thee well
well I am bound for California
but I know that I'll return someday

So fare thee well, my own true love
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

Oh I have signed on the yankee sailin' ship
Davy Crockett is her name
And Burgess is the captain of her
And they say that she's a floatin shame


Oh I have sailed w/ this Burgess once before
And I think that I know him quite well
For if a man is a sailor, he can get along
If not, he's in a floating Hell


The sun is on the harbor, love
And I wish that I could be thain
Because I know it will be some long long time
Before we see you again
