The Holy Ground

Fare thee well my lovely Dinah a thousand times adieu
For we’re going away from the Holy Ground and the girls we all love true
We will sail the salt seas over and we’ll return for shore
To see again the girls we love and the Holy Ground once more

(Everyone shouts) Fine girl you are!”

CHORUS:
          You’re the girl I do ado – re    and still I live in hopes to see
The Holy Ground once more   (Everyone shouts) “Fine girl you are!”

Oh now the storm is raging and we are far from shore
And the good old ship is tossing about and the rigging is all tore
And the secret of my mind my love you’re the girl I do ado – re
And still I live in hopes to see the Holy Ground once more

(Everyone shouts) “Fine girl you are!” ……………………….CHORUS

And now the storm is over and we are safe and well
We will go into the Griswold Inn and we’ll sit and drink like hell!  Like Hell!
We will drink strong ale and porter and make the rafters roar!
And when our money is all spent we will go to sea once more

(Everyone shouts) “Fine girl you are!” ……………………………CHORUS
