Farewell to you my own true love
I am going far away
I am bound for Ca-
And I know that I'll return some day.
So faretheewell my own true love
And 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.
The sun is on the harbour now
And I wish I could remain
But I know it will be some long time
Before I see you again.
