The holy ground
Fine girl you are!
Adieu to you my Dinah a thousand times adieu,
We're going away from the Holy Ground and the girls that we love true.
We will sail the South sea over and then return for sure,
To see again the girls we love and the Holy Ground once more.
Fine girl you are! You're the girl that I adore,
And still I live in hopes to see The Holy ground once more, Fine girls you are!
See the storm a-rising I see it coming soon,
And the sky it is so cloudy you can scarcely see the moon,
And the good old ship, she was tossing about,
The rigging was all tore, and still I live with hope to see,
The Holy ground once more.
And now the storm it is over and we are safe on shore,
We will drink a toast to the Holy Ground and the girls that we adore,
We will drink strong ale and porter and make the rafters roar,
And when you money is all spent we'll go to sea for more.
