The Holy Ground

Holy Ground Song Lyrics - Video

Fare well, my lovely Dinah,
a thousand times adieu.
I am going away from the Holy Ground
and the ones that I love true
I'll sail the salt seas over and then return for shore,
To see again the ones that I love and the Holy Ground once more.

I'm on the salt sea sailing
and you are safe behind
Fond letters I will write to you
with the secrets of my mind,
The secrets of my mind, my love , you're the one that I adore,
And still I live in hope that I will see the Holy Ground once more.

I see the storm rising
It's coming quick and soon
And the night so dark and cloudy
You can scarsely see the moon
And the secrets of my mind, my love , you're the one that I adore,
And still I live in hope that I will see the Holy Ground once more.

And now the storm is over and I am safe and well
We'll go into a public house and we'll sit and drink our filll
We'll drink strong ale and porter
and we'll make the rafters roar
And when our money is all spent we'll go to sea once more.
you're the one that I adore,
And still I live in hope that I will see the Holy Ground once more.
Fine girl you are.
