Farewell to Princes; landing stage
River Mersey fare thee well
I am bound for Cali ; for – ni – a
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 ; grieves me
But my darling when I think of the
Farewell to lower; Fredrick Street
Anson Terrace and Park lane
I am bound away for to; leave you
And I never see you again
I ve shipped on Yankee ;clipper ship
Davy Crockett is her name
Dan Burgess is the; captain of her
and they say he’s a floating hell

I have sailed with Burgess ; once before
And I think I know him well
If a man’s a sailor he will; get along
If not then he’s sure in hell

I am bound for Cali ; for –, ni –a
By way of stormy Cape Horn
I will write to you a letter; dear
When I am homeward bound
The sun is on the; harbour love
and I wish I could remain
But I know it will be á ; long, long time
Before I see you again
