[G]Farewell to you my[C] own true[G] love,
I am going far,far a[D]way,
I am[G] bound for Cali[C]forni[G]a,
I know that I'll re[D]turn some[G] day.
So [D]fare thee well my [C]own true [G]love,
When I return
[C]united [G]we will [D]be,
Its not the [G]leaving of Liverpool that[C] grieves [G]me,
But my darling when I [D]think
I have slipped on board a Yankee ship
Davey Crockett is her name,
And her captain it is
And they say that she's a floating hell.
I have sailed with Burgess once before,
And I think
I know him well,
If a man's a salor he will get along,
If not then he's sure for hell.
Oh the sun is
in the harbour love,
And I wish I could remain,
For I know it will be a long,long time,
Before I see you again.
