about

Trad.

lyrics

Fare thee well to you, my own true love,
I’m going far, far away
I am bound for California,
And I know that I’ll return some day

CHORUS

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

I’ve slipped on a Yankee clipper ship,
Davy Crockett is her name,
And Burgess is the captain of here
And they say that she's a floating hell

CHORUS

Oh I've sailed with Burgess once before
And I think that I know him well
If a man's a sailor he will get along
And if not then he's sure for hell

CHORUS

Oh the sun is on the harbour, love,
And I wish that I could remain,
For I know that it will be a long, long time,
Before I see you again
