The Ronnie Drew Group who later changed their name to The Dubliners singing The Leaving of Liverpool from a programme called Ballad Sheet 1963.

Farewell to Princes' landing stage River fare thee well
I am bound for California, a place I know right well

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 am bound for California by way of stormy Cape Horn
And I will write to thee a letter, love, when I am homeward bound

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