Leaving Of Liverpool Chords

The Leaving of Liverpool (misc. Irish)

    C                F       C
Farewell to Prince's Landing Stage;
              a         G7
River Mersey, fare thee well.
     C             F    C
I am bound for California,
          G7         C
A place I know right well.

   G7                 F        C
So fare thee well, my own true love,
               a             F   G
When I return united we will be.
             C                         F       C
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
                        G7       C
But, my darling, when I think of thee.

I have signed on a Yankee Clipper ship,
Davy Crockett is her name;
And Burgess is the Captain of her,
And they say she's a floating shame.


I have shipped with Burgess once before
And I think I know him right well.
If a man is a sailor, he can get along,
But if not, then he's surely in Hell.


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


hope you like it.
