Traditional

4:4 Key:G

Intro [G]////[D7]////[G]////

Verse 1
Fare thee [G]well to Prince's [C]Landing [G]Stage.
Mersey [G]River, fare thee [D7]well.
Well, I am [G]bound for Cali[C]forni[G]a,
But I know that I'll re[D7]turn some[G]day.

Chorus
So [G]fare thee well, my [C]own true [G]love.
When [G]I return united we will [D7]be.
It's not the [G]leaving of Liverpool that [C]grieves [G]me,
But my darling when I [D7]think of [G]thee.


Verse 2
[G]Oh, I have signed on [C]the yank[G]ee sailin' ship.
Davy [G]Crockett is her [D7]name.
And [G]Burgess is the [C]captain of [G]her,
And they say that she's a [D7]floatin [G]shame.

Chorus

Verse 3
Oh, I have [G]sailed with this Burgess [C]once be[G]fore,
And I think that I know him quite [D7]well.
For if a [G]man is a sailor, he can [C]get a[G]long.
If not, he's in a [D7]floating [G]Hell

Chorus

Verse 4
The [G]sun is on the [C]harbor, [G]love.
And I [G]wish that I could be [D7]thain.
Because I [G]know it will be some [C]long, long [G]time
Before we see [D7]you a[G]gain.
