    city s most expensive houses of debauchery were in two blocks along Church Vesey and Barclay streets on land owned by the Episcopal church Cassell s Dictionary of Slang suggests that the holy ground was slang for a red light district at least as early as the 19th century Brewer s Britain Ireland identifies it as 18th century slang for a criminal slum or red light district Cobh Shanty Fare thee well my lovely Dinah ten thousand times adieu For we re sailin away from the Holy Ground and the girls we always knew Though we sail the seven seas over we ll still return for shore And still I live in hopes to see the Holy Ground once more Shouted Fine girl you are Sung You re the girl I do adore And still I live in hopes to see the Holy Ground once more And now the storm is raging and we are far from shore And the little ship is tossin about and the rigging is all tore But secrets of my mind my love you re the girl I do adore And still I live in hopes to see the Holy Ground once more chorus as

    Dark Eyed Sailor As I roved out one evening fair It bein the summertime to take the air I spied a sailor and a lady gay And I stood to listen And I stood to listen to hear what they would say He said Fair lady why do you roam For the day is spent and the night is on She heaved a sigh while the tears did roll For my dark eyed sailor For my dark eyed sailor so young and stout and bold Tis seven long years since he left this land A ring he took from off his lily white hand One half of the ring is still here with me But the other s rollin But the other s rollin at the bottom of the sea He said You may drive him out of your mind Some other young man you will surely find Love turns aside and soon cold has grown Like the winter s morning Like the winter s morning the hills are white with snow She said I ll never forsake my dear Although we re parted this many a year Genteel he was and a rake like you To induce a maiden
