     The Holy Ground was a notorious red light district near Cobh Harbour in
     Co Cork in Ireland. This was a maritime work song sang on the ships,
     and boats as anchors were weighed and rigging was hoisted, hopeful that
     you'd survive the journey


                                  THE HOLY GROUND


      C       G      C  C          C       G     C
    Adeiu to you my Dinah,    A thousand times adieu
             C    Am            F      G              C                  G
    We are going away from the Holy Ground,  And the girls that we loved true
             C        G        C C         C     Am        F  G
    We will sail the salt sea over,   And then return for shore  
        C   Am          F         C              C      G         C         (SHOUT)
    To see again,  The girls we loved,  And the Holy Ground once more:  FINE GIRL YA'ARE

         C     Am    F G
    The girl I do   adore
          C      Am       F       C         C     G          C         (SHOUT)
    And still I live in hopes to see,  The Holy Ground once more:  FINE GIRL YA'ARE

       C        G      C  C         C       G     C
    I see the storm a-rising,    I see it coming soon
             C     Am     F   G                C              G
    And the sky it is so clouded,   You can scarcely see the moon
              C       G             C      C                  C    Am       F  G
    And the good old ship she is tossing about,    And the rigging was all tore
          C      Am       F       C         C      G         C        (SHOUT)
    And still I live in hopes to see,  The Holy Ground once more: FINE GIRL YA'ARE

         C     Am    F G
    The girl I do   adore
          C      Am       F       C         C     G          C          (SHOUT)
    And still I live in hopes to see,  The Holy Ground once more:  FINE GIRL YA'ARE

         C        G       C C     C       G        C
    And now the storm is over,    We are safe on shore
            C              Am           F      G               C             G
    We'll drink and we'll toast to the Holy Ground,  And the girls that we adore
              C           G       C  C        C         Am    F G
    We will drink strong ale and porter, And make the rafters roar
         C        Am   F        C           C      G        C         (SHOUT)
    And when our money is all spent,  We'll go to sea once more:  FINE GIRL YA'ARE

         C     Am    F G
    The girl I do   adore
          C      Am       F       C         C      G         C          (SHOUT)
    And still I live in hopes to see,  The Holy Ground once more:  FINE GIRL YA'ARE
