The Holy Ground
                  D          A7      D                           A7       D
Fare thee well my lovely Dinah a thousand times adieu

                            A                   G
For we're going away from the Holy Ground

                D                     A7
And the girls we all love true

             D          A7            D                      A7         D
We will sail the salt seas over and we'll return for sure

      G             D   G    D                                  A7                D      
To see again the girls we love and the Holy Ground once more

(Everyone shouts) "Fine girl you are!"


D                         A7    G    A7          G             D G       D
You're the girl I do ado - re    and still I live in hopes to see

                A7                D         
The Holy Ground once more   (Everyone shouts) "Fine girl you are!"

       D          A7         D                            A7         D
Oh now the storm is raging and we are far from shore

                               A       G                                  D                  A7
And the good old ship is tossing about and the rigging is all tore

               D       A7      D                                           A7   G    A7
And the secret of my mind my love you're the girl I do ado - re

         G            D G       D                A7                        D
And still I live in hopes to see the Holy Ground once more

(Everyone shouts) "Fine girl you are!" ............................CHORUS

       D             A7          D                      A7          D
And now the storm is over and we are safe and well

                   A7       G                         D                      A7   
We will go into a public house and sit and drink our fill

             D                  A7       D                               A7      G   A
We will drink strong ale and porter and make the rafters roar

       G                   D    G    D                            A7          D
And when our money is all spent we'll go to sea once more

(Everyone shouts) "Fine girl you are!" .................................CHORUS
