This song is the equivalent of Tin Pan Alley Irish songs, written by vaudevillian Sam Manning. Can someone help me find the lyrics/a way to create an accompaniment?
Here's what I could find:

I'm leavin', leavin', leavin' town today,
Sailin', sailin' like a stowaway.
But I'm happy, oh I'm going home,
Never comin' back.

May have been inspired by 1920s "West Indies Blues."

@Charley: Maybe-- or maybe they're just part of the same genre of songs.
