|As||we marched||down||to Fer||nar||io|
|As we marched d||own to||Fer||nari||o,|
|Our||captain fell in||love|
|With a lady like a||dove,|
|And the||name she was||called wa||s pretty||Peggy-||O.|
"Come go along with me, pretty Peggy-o (twice)
In coaches you shall ride
With your true love by your side,
Just as grand as any lady in the areo."
"What would your mother think, pretty Peggy-o ? (twice)
What would your mother think
For to hear the guineas clink,
And the soldiers all are marching before ye-o?"
"You're the man that I adore, handsome Willy-o, (twice)
You're the man that I adore,
But your fortune is too low,
I'm afraid my mother would be angry O."
"Come a-trippin' down the stair, pretty Peggy-o (twice)
Come a-trippin' down the stair
And tie up your yellow hair,
Bid a last farewell to handsome Willy-o."
"If ever I return, pretty Peggy-o (twice)
If ever I return
The city I will burn,
And destroy all the ladies in the areo!"
"Our captain, he is dead, pretty Peggy-o, (twice)
Our captain he is dead
And he died for a maid,
And he's buried in the Louisiana Country-o."
