Traditional Folk Song -  ACROSS THE WESTERN OCEAN Sheet Music


ACROSS THE WESTERN OCEAN
Lyrics

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
