I prosjektet mitt er eg for tida ein liten tur til sjøss. Det er mykje å finne ut om gamle handelsskip og sjømannssanger. The Dubliners har aldri vore mykje å sjå til, så det gjer vel ikkje så mykje at de berre får høyre.

Ref: So fare thee well, my own true love
And 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!

1. Fare thee well, to thee my own true love
I am sailing far away
I am bound for Cal-ey-for-nia
But I know that I’ll return some day.

2 .I have sailed aboard a yankee sailing ship,
Davy Crocket was her name.
And Forgess was the captain of her,
And they she was a floating shame

3. I have sailed with Forgess once before
and I think I know him well;
If a man’s a sailor he will get along,
But if not, then he sure’s in hell

4. Now fare thee well to thee, Princess Landing stage
And St. Tallis, and church Lane
For I know that it will be a long, long time
Before I see you again.
