The Leaving Of Liverpool

Traditional

4:4 Key: C

[C]Farewell to you my [F]own true [C]love,
I am going far,far a[G]way,
I am [C]bound for Cali[F]forn[C]ia,
And I know that I'll re[G7]turn some [C]day.

Chorus
So [G]fare thee well my [F]own true [C]love,
When I return [F]united [C]we will [G]be,
Its not the [C]leaving of [C7]Liverpool that [F]grieves [C]me,
But my darling when I [G]think of [C]thee.


[C]I have slipped on board a [F]Yankee [C]ship
Davey Crockett is her [G]name,
And her [C]captain it is [F]Bur[C]gess,
And they say that she's a [G]floating [C]hell.

Chorus

[C]I have sailed with Burgess [F]once be[C]fore,
And I think I [C]know him [G]well,
If a [C]man's a sailor he will [F]get a[C]long,
If not then he's [G]sure for [C]hell.

Chorus

[C]Oh the sun is in the [F]harbour [C]love,
And I wish I [C]could re[G]main,
For I [C]know it will be a [F]long,long [C]time,
Before I see [G]you a[C]gain.

Chorus
