W:From Derry quay we sailed away on the twenty-third of May.
W:We were taken on board by a pleasant crew, bound for Amerikay.
W:Fresh water then we did take on, five thousand gallons or more,
W:in case we'd run short going to New York far away from the shamrock shore.
W:
W:So fare thee well, sweet Liza dear and likewise to Derry town,
W:and twice farewell to my comrades brave who dwell on that sainted ground.
W:If fortune it ever should favour me, and I to have money in store
W:I'll come back and I'll wed the wee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore.
W:
W:We sailed three weeks, we were all seasick, not a man on board was free.
W:We were all confined unto our bunks and no-one to pity poor me.
W:No father kind nor mother dear to lift up my head, which was sore,
W:which made me think more on the lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore.
W:
W:We safely reached the other side in three and twenty days,
W:We were taken as passengers by a man and led round in six different ways.
W:Then each of us drank a parting glass, in case we'd never meet more
W:And we drank a health to old Ireland and Paddy's green shamrock shore.
W:
W:So fare thee well, sweet Liza dear and likewise to Derry town,
W:and twice farewell to my comrades brave who dwell on that sainted ground.
W:If fortune it ever should favour me, and I to have money in store
W:I'll come back and I'll wed the wee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore.
