Lyrics

Farewell to Prince's Landing Stage River Mersey, fare thee well I am bound for California 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's grieving me But my darling when I think of thee I'm bound off for California By the way of stormy Cape Horn And I'm bound to write you a letter, love When I am homeward bound Chorus: 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 Hell I have shipped with Burgess once before And I think I know him well If a man's a seaman, he can get along If not, then he's sure in Hell Farewell to lower Frederick Street Ensign Terrace and Park Lane For I think it will be a long, long time Before I see you again Oh the sun is on the harbour, love And I wish I could remain For I know it will be a long, long time Till I see you again
