Farewell Manchester! noble town, fare-well!
Here with loyalty ev'ry breast can swell,
Wheresoe'er I roam, Here, as in a home,
Ever, dear Lancashire, my heart shall dwell.
Farewell Manchester! sadly I depart.
Tear-drops bodingly from their prison start.
Though I toil anew, Shadows to pursue,
Shadows vain, thou'lt remain within my heart.
Singing Together, Summer 1951, BBC Publications
From "The National Song Book", Boosey and Hawkes Ltd.
The tune is also used for the Lichfield morris under the name "Ring O' Bells".
I leave it to people with more knowledge to disentangle the relationship between the song and the morris dance.
