Pretty Peggy O
2   It's will you marry me, Pretty Peggy O ? It's will you marry me, Pretty Peggy O ?
You may dress in your silks and ride the buggy high Just as grand as any in the country O.
3   It's William is the man I do adore,
But I'm afeard my mother would be angry O.
What would your mother think to hear the chingles dank
And the soldiers marching on the floor O ?
4   Come trip you downstairs, Pretty Peggy O, Come trip you downstairs, Pretty Peggy O,
Come trip you downstairs and roach back your yellow hair, Take the last farewell of your little William O.
