Fine girl you are!
Adieu to you my Dinah,
A thousand times adieu.
We're going away from the Holy Ground,
And the girls that we love true.
We will sail the south sea over
And then return for sure.
To see again the girls we love,
The Holy Ground once more.

Chorus:
Fine girl you are,
You're the girl that I adore
And still I live in the hopes to see
The Holy Ground once more,
Fine girl you are!

See the storm arising,
I see it coming soon,
And the sky it is so cloudy
You can scarcely se the moon.
And the good old ship, she was tossing about,
The riggin' was all tore,
And still I live with hopes to see,
The Holy Ground once more.

Chorus:
Fine girl you are,
You're the girl that I adore
And still I live in the hopes to see
The Holy Ground once more,
Fine girl you are!

And now the storm is over
And we are safe on shore,
We will drink a toast to the Holy Ground
And the girls that we adore.
We will drink strong ale and porter
And make the rafters roar,
And when our money is all spent,
We'll go to sea for more.

Chorus:
Fine girl you are,
You're the girl that I adore
And still I live in the hopes to see
The Holy Ground once more,
Fine girl you are!
