The Holy Ground

Fare thee well my lovely Dinah
A thousand times adieu
For we are going away from the Holy ground
And the girls we all love true.

We'll sail the salt seas over and we'll return for sure
To see again the girls we love
And the Holy ground once more
Shout: Fine girl you are!
Chorus:
You're the girl I do adore
And still I live in hope to see
The Holy ground once more
Shout: Fine girl you are!

2. Now when we're out a-sailing
And you are far behind
Fine letters will I write to you
With the secrets of my mind

The secrets of my mind, my girl,
Your the girl that I adore
And still I live in hope to see
The Holy ground once more
Shout: Fine girl you are!
Chorus:

3. Oh, now the storm is over
And we are far from shore
The poor old ship is sinking fast
And the riggings are all torn

The night is dark and dreary
We can scarcely see the moon
But still I live in hope to see
The Holy ground once more
Shout: Fine girl you are!
Chorus:

4. But now the storm is over
And we are safe and well
We'll go to a public house
And we will drink our fill

We will drink strong ales and porters
And make the rafters roar
And when our money is all spent
We'll go to sea once more
[SHOUT: Fine girl you are!]
Chorus:
