Leaving Of Liverpool

Pogues

 CFC
Fare thee well to you, my own true love,
 G
there were many fare thee wells.
 CFC
I am bound for California,
 GC
a place that I know right well.
 GFC
So fare the well, my own true love,
 G
when I return united we will be.
 CFC
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
 GC
but my darling when I think of thee.

 CFC
I am bound on a yankee clipper ship,
 G
Davy Crockett is her name.
 CFC
And her captain's name it is Burgess,
 GC
and they say that she's a floating Hell.
 GFC
So fare the well, my own true love,
 G
when I return united we will be.
 CFC
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
 GC
but my darling when I think of thee.

 CFC
I sailed with Burgess once before,
 G
and I think I know him well,
 CFC
If a man's a sailor he will get along,
 GC
if he's not then he's sure in Hell.
 GFC
So fare the well, my own true love,
 G
when I return united we will be.
 CFC
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
 GC
but my darling when I think of thee.

 CFC
The ship is in the harbor, love,
 G
and you know I can't remain,
 CFC
I know it will be a long long time
 GC
before I see you again.

So fare the 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.

So fare the 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
