The Leaving Of Liverpool   
Corny Held

Fare thee well to Prince's Landing Stage
River Mersey, fare thee well
Well I am bound for California
A place that I know right well

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 am boarding a yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
And Burgess is the captain of her
And they say that she's a floatin' shame

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