Pub Sing

Our village is filled with many songs and many groups to sing them, but every day closes with these two fan favorites! 

The Leaving of Liverpool 

Farewell to Princes' landing stage  

River Mersey 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 have sailed with Burgess once before,  

I think I know him well 

If a man's a sailor he will get along,  

if not then he's sure in hell 

 

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 

 

 

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 

Crossing the Bar 

Sunset and evening star 

And one clear call for me! 

And may there be no moaning of the bar 

When I put out to sea 

 

When I put out to sea 

When I put out to sea 

And may there be no moaning of the bar 

When I put out to sea 

 

But such a tide as moving seems asleep 

Too full for sound and foam 

That which drew from out the boundless deep 

Turns again home 

 

Turns again home 

Turns again home 

That which drew from out the boundless deep 

Turns again home 

 

Twilight and evening bell 

And after that the dark! 

And may there be no sadness of farewell 

When I embark 

 

When I embark 

When I embark 

And may there be no sadness of farewell 

When I embark 

 

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place 

The flood may bear me far 

I hope to see my Pilot face to face 

When I have crost the bar 

 

When I have crost the bar 

When I have crost the bar 

I hope to see my Pilot face to face 

When I have crost the bar
