The Leaving Of Liverpool - Ukulele Chords

Fabulous traditional tune that works well on the uke



The Leaving Of Liverpool


G C G
Farew ell to you, my own true love,
D7
I am going far a way.
G C G
I am bound for Cal - i - for - ni - a,
D7 G
But I know that I'll retu rn some day.


Chorus:
D C G
So fare you well my own true love,
D
And when I return, united we will be.
G C G
It's not the le aving of Liverpool that grieves me
D7 G
But my darling, it's when I think of thee.

I'm off to California
By way of the stormy Cape Horn,
And I will send you a letter, love,
When I am homeward bound.

Chorus

I've shipped on a Yankee clipper ship,
Davy Crockett is her name,
And Burgess is the captain of her
And they say she is a floating hell.

Chorus

I'm bound away to leave you,
Goodbye, my love, goodbye.
There ain't but one thing that grieves me,
That's leaving you behind.

Chorus


Oh the sun is on the harbor, love,
And I wish I could remain,
For I know it will be some long time
Before I see you again.

Chorus x 2
