    Lyrics

    As we rode out to Fennario, as we rode on to Fennario
    Our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove
    And called her by a name, pretty Peggy-O.
    Will you marry me pretty Peggy-O, will you marry me pretty Peggy-O

    If you will marry me, I'll set your cities free
    And free all the ladies in the area-O.
    I would marry you sweet William-O, I would marry you sweet William-O
    I would marry you but your guineas are too few

    And I fear my mama would be angry-O.
    What would your mama think pretty Peggy-O,
    What would your mama think pretty Peggy-O,
    What would your mama think if she heard my guineas clink

    Saw me marching at the head of my soldiers.
    If ever I return pretty Peggy-O, if ever I return pretty Peggy-O
    If ever I return your cities I will burn
    Destroy all the ladies in the area-O.

    Come steppin' down the stairs pretty Peggy-O,
    Come steppin' down the stairs pretty Peggy-O,
    Come steppin' down the stairs combin' back your yellow hair
    Bid a last farewell to your William-O.

    Sweet William he is dead pretty Peggy-O,
    Sweet William he is dead pretty Peggy-O,
    Sweet William he is dead and he died for a maid
    And he's buried in the Louisiana country-O.

    As we rode out to Fennario, as we rode out to Fennario
    Our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove,
    And called her by a name, pretty Peggy-O.
