The Leaving Of Liverpool - as performed by The Pogues

[Verse]

    C                      F        C
Fare thee well to you, my own true love,
                           G
there were many fare thee wells.
    C             F    C
I am bound for California,
               G         C
a place that I know right well.


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

    C                      F     C
I am bound on a yankee clipper ship,
                      G
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.


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

    C                 F    C
I sailed with Burgess once before,
                       G
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.


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

    C                 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.


[Chorus]

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

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