Davy Crockett is her name.
    C                        F    C
And her captain's name it is Burgess,
                          G        C
and they say that she's a floating Hell.
    G                 F        C

I sailed with Burgess once before,

and I think I know him well,
    C                        F    C
If a man's a sailor he will get along,
                        G      C
if he's not then he's sure in Hell.
    G                 F        C

The ship is in the harbor, love,
                      G
and you know I can't remain,
   C                 F        C
I know it will be a long long time
             G       C
before I see you again.

So fare the well, my own true love,
when I return united we will be.
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
