Release information
Release Date: 2010
length: 3:41
Farewell to Prince's Landing Stage
River Mersey, fare thee well
I am bound for California
It's a place that I know right well

Chorus:
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 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 shame
Chorus:

I have sailed with Burgess once before
And hes a man I know right well
If a man is a sailor, he can get along
And if nothin' he is sure in Hell
Chorus:

Now the sun is on the harbour, love
And I wish I could remain
For I know it will be a long, long time
Before I see you again
Chorus: (x2)
