Farewell to Prince's Landing Stage
River Mersey, fare thee well
I am bound for California
A place I know right well

I have signed on a Yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
Burgess is the captain of her
And they say she's a floating shame

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 thee

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
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

Oh the sun is on the harbor, love
And I wish I could remain
For I know it will be a long, long time
until I see you again
