DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyric req: "Fare thee well, my own true love"
From: Gallagher
Date: 20 Jan 97 - 12:24 AM

I got this song confused with the "Last Thing On My Mind." I think the "Fare Thee Well" song is also sung by Judy Collins on the "Recollections" Elektra album. All I recall is: "So, fare thee well, my own true love....It's not the leaving that's grieving me, but my true love which I'm bound to leave behind." Sound familiar anyone? --Thanks, Gallagher

Sure, "Leaving of Liverpool" is an extremely popular English ballad, known also in Ireland and other parts of the world (even in Poland in Enlish or Polish). It's a song of lament at having to emigrate to Amerikay and leave the place we were born ... Of course, it's in DT as "Leaving Liverpool" although there are so very many versions of it, that you can simply rememeber other one. Common is at least the first verse and chorus (I've included chords):

Fare well to you my own true love A D A I am going far far away A D A E I am bound for California E A D A And I know that I'll return some day. A E A


So fare thee well my own true love E D A For when I return united we will be A D E It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grives me E A D E A But my darling when I think of thee. A E A

A chara! Thank you so much for the information. It's so frustrating when you think you know something & tell another. Then, come to find out, middle age sets in, & you don't really remember what you used to know so well at all! --Slainte, Gallagher (
