[Intro] E

    E                 A        E
Farewell to Prince’s landing stage,
                        B
River Mersey fare thee well
      E             A    E
I am bound for California,
                B           E
a place that I know right well.
      E                  A     E
I am bound on a yankee sailing ship,
                      B
Davy Crockett is her name.
    E                 A        E
And Burgess is the captain of her,
                      B        E
and they say she's a floating shame.

    B                 A        E
So fare the well, my own true love,
                              B
when I return, united we will be.
              E                         A      E
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
                        B       E
but my darling when I think of thee.

E, A, E         B, E

    E                       A      E
I have sailed with Burgess once before,
                             B
and I think that I know him well,
     E                A        E
If a man's a sailor he’ll get along,
                       B      E
But if not then he's sure in hell.
       E              A        E
Oh the sun is on the harbour, love
                          B
And I wish that I could remain,
      E                  A        E
For I know it will be a long long time
               B     E
Before I see you again.
 
   B                 A        E
So fare the well, my own true love,
                              B
when I return, united we will be.
              E                         A      E
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
                        B       E
but my darling when I think of thee.

E A E       E B
E A E       E B E

      E
It’s not the leaving of Liverpool,
     E
I’m grieving when I think of you
   E
I miss you, I miss you
     E
The sun is on the harbour, love
     E
the ocean with the sky above
     F#
It’s not the sea that makes me grieve
     A
the tide is high, I have to leave

    B                 A        E
So fare the well, my own true love,
                              B
when I return, united we will be.
              E                         A      E
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
                        B       E
but my darling when I think of thee.

E A E   E B E

(bass only)
    E                A        E
Farewell to you, my own true love
                      B
I am sailing far, far away
      E             A    E
I am bound for California
               B           E
But I know I’ll return some day.

    B                 A        E
So fare the well, my own true love,
                              B
when I return, united we will be.
              E                         A      E
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
                        B       E
but my darling when I think of thee.
    B                 A        E
So fare the well, my own true love,
                              B
when I return, united we will be.
              E                         A      E
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
       E                B       E
but my darling when I think of thee.
       E                B       E
but my darling when I think of thee.
