Peggy Gordon

  O Peggy Gordon, You are my darling
  Come sit you down upon my knee
  And tell to me the very reason
  Why I am slighted so by thee

I am so deep in love that I can't deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But it's not for you to let the whole world know it
A troubled mind can find no rest

I leaned myself on a cask of brandy
It was my fancy, I do declare
For when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
Wishing Peggy Gordon was there

I wished I was in a lonesome valley
Where womankind cannot be found
And the pretty little birds do change their voices
And every moment a different sound

I wish I was away in Ingo
Far away across the briny sea
Sailing over deepest waters
Where love nor care never trouble me

  Collected in Nova Scotia by Helen Creighton
  sung by Tony Saletan and by Robin & Barry Dranesfield
  printed in Sing Out
