Gaelic Storm - The Leaving Of Liverpool Lyrics

The Leaving Of Liverpool

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
