Clifton, it does appear that the version of "Holy Ground" you are looking for overlaps with "Go to sea No More." What's unclear is whether it's a modern re-write of "Go to Sea Once More" or an older adaptation. I've never run across it before but it looks like an interesting version, be it newer or older. I bet the tune is similar. Maybe it's all a product of collective memory loss.;-)
Abby, I was also musing over the New York City "sister" neighborhood.
