Chorus
C G F G
I`ve got to leave old Durham town
C F G C
I`ve got to leave old Durham town
E Am F
I`ve got to leave old Durham town
C G C
And the leavings gonna get me down
 
C G F G
I remember back in forty-four
C E Am E
I remember Daddy walking out the door
C G F G Am Am
Mama told me he was going to war, he was leaving
E E E
Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving me
 
Chorus
 
C G F G
When I was a boy, I spent my time
C E Am E
Sitting on the banks of the river Tyne
C G F G Am Am
Watching all the ships going down the line, they were leaving
E E E
Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving me
 
Chorus
 
C G F G
Last week Mama passed away
C E Am E
Goodbye, son, was all she'd say
C G F G Am Am
There's no cause for me to stay so I'm leaving
E E E
Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving free
