The Holy Ground Lyrics And Chords. Irish Folk. The Dubliners. Luke Kelly on vocals. also recorded by The Clancy Brothers And Tommy Makem. The "Holy Ground" is a quarter of Cobh (once known as Queenstown), which was inhabited mainly by fisherman, so the song is also known as The Cobh Sea Shanty. The Holy Ground is actually a set of Irish lyrics to the songs. The video is The Dubliners. Sheet music notes included. Recently recorded by Country singer Nathan Carter.

Fare[C] thee well, my[G7] lovely[C] Dinah, a thousand [G7]times a[C]dieu.
We are bound[G] away from the[F] Holy Ground and the [C]girls we love so[G7] true.
We'll[C] sail the[G7] salt seas[C] over and we'll re[G7]turn once[F] more,
[G]And[F] still I live in[C] hope to see the Holy[G7] Ground once[C] more.
(Shouted) Fine girl you are!
(Sung)[C] You're the girl that[G7] I a[F]dore,,,[G]
And [F]still I live[C] in[F] hope [C]to see the Holy[G7] Ground once [C]more.

Now when we're out a-sailing and you are far behind
Fine letters will I write to you with the secrets of my mind,
The secrets of my mind, my girl, you're the girl that I adore,
And still I live in hope to see the Holy Ground once more.

Oh now the storm is raging and we are far from shore;
The poor old ship she's sinking fast and the riggings they are tore.
The night is dark and dreary, we can scarcely see the moon,
But still I live in hope to see the Holy Ground once more.
It's now the storm is over and we are safe on shore
We'll drink a toast to the Holy Ground and the girls that we adore.
We'll drink strong ale and porter and we'll make the taproom roar,
And when our money is all spent we'll go to sea once more.
