Farewell to Princes; landing stage

River Mersey fare thee well

I am bound for Cali ; for – ni – a

A place 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 the

Farewell to lower; Fredrick Street

Anson Terrace and Park lane

I am bound away for to; leave you

And I never see you again



I ve shipped on Yankee ;clipper ship

Davy Crockett is her name

Dan Burgess is the; captain of her

and they say he’s a floating hell


I have sailed with Burgess ; once before

And I think I know him well

If a man’s a sailor he will; get along

If not then he’s sure in hell


I am bound for Cali ; for –, ni –a

By way of stormy Cape Horn

I will write to you a letter; dear

When I am homeward bound


The sun is on the; harbour love

and I wish I could remain

But I know it will be á ; long, long time

Before I see you again
