Across the Western Ocean Oh the times are hard and the wages low Amelia, where you bound? The Rocky Mountains is my home Across the Western Ocean. It's a land of plenty there you'll see I'm off across the Western Sea. To Liverpool I'll make my way To Liverpool that Yankee school. There's Liverpool Pat with his tarpaulin hat And Yankee John the packet rat. Beware those packet ships, I pray, They'll steal your stores and your clothes away. Note: verses and tunes can be swapped with Leave Her Johnny From Songs of the Irish in America, Meek RG
