Peggy-O - Lyrics & Chords


Am  Em 
As  we marched  down  to Fer nar io
Em  Am 
As we marched d own  to  Fer nari o,
Our  captain fell in  love
With a lady like a  dove,
Am  Em 
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."
