"The Leaving of Liverpool" as written by Jeremy Max Finer, Shane Patrick Lysaght Macgowan, Cait O'riordan, James Thirkhill Fearnley, Andrew David Ranken, Peter Spider Stacey and Dp,....
Fare thee well to Prince's Landing Stage.
Mersey River, fare thee well.
Well, I am bound for California, but I know that I'll return someday.

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.

Oh, I have signed on the yankee sailin' ship.
Davy Crockett is her name.
And Burgess is the captain of her, and they say that she's a floatin? shame.

Chorus
Oh, I have sailed with this Burgess once before, and I think that I know him quite well.
For if a man is a sailor, he can get along. If not, he's in a floating Hell

Chorus
The sun is on the harbor, love.
And I wish that I could be thain.
Because I know it will be some long, long time before we see you again.
