Oh[D] Peggy Gordon you[G] are my[D] dar[A]ling,
[G]Come sit you[D] down upon my[A] knee,
[G]Come tell to[D] me the[G] very[D] reas[A]on,
[G]Why I am[D] slighted[A],so by[D] thee,
I wish I was in some lonesome vally,where woman kind cannot be found,
Where the pritty small birds,do change their voices,and every moment a differend sound.
Im so in love that I cant deny it,my heart lies smothered in my breast,
But its not for you to lrt the world know it,a troubled mind can know no rest.
I did put my head to a cask of brandy,it was my fancy I do declare,
For when im drinking I am always thinking,and wishing Peggy Gordon was here.
[Repeat first verse]
