Song and tune are in DT as Holy Ground (also Swansea Town, but that just gives Holy Ground)

Hi there. I have the lyrics, but I just need the chords, which dont' seem to be in the database.

Then why did you ask for the lyrics in the thread title?

Guest, I believe the prefix which includes chord request was used, which happens to include lyrics too. The first post specifies chords.

sgordon, keep checking back, and I'd suggest you bookmark the thread so you can find it if it falls off the daily list (although you can also find it then by using the Age Filter box... see FAQ thread). Someone with arranging skill will probably work them out for you. What key are you working in? And what do you have so far? I'd do them for you myself if my sound card was any good-- I can't hear it to get a start for you.

You're the girl I (G7)do a-(F)dore(G)
And (F)still I live (C)in (F)hopes (C)to see
The holy (G7)ground once (C)more.

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!"

CHORUS:

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

Was it not a "house of ill repute"? (Knocking shop)

Hi Gang,

A friend of mine told me that the song The Holy Ground is about prostitution. So I thought I'd toss this question to the smart folks. Yes, that means you. Many thanks.

See above - it may have some answers for you.

I don't think you could say it was ABOUT prostitution, but that brothels and prostitutes are what the sailors miss.
