Lyrics
This tune is based on a Scottish tune Bonny Lass of Fyvie. As we marched down to Fenario
As we marched down to Fenario
Our captain feel in love with a lady like a dove
And the name she was called was pretty Peggy-o

Come go along with me, Pretty Peggy-o
Come go along with me, Pretty Peggy-o
In coaches you will 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
What would your mother think, Pretty Peggy-o
What would your mother think for to hear the guineas clink
And the soldiers all a marching before you o

You're the man that I adore, Handsome Willi-o
You're the man that I adore, Handsome Willi-o
You're the man that I adore, but your fortune is too low
I'm afraid my mother would be angry-o

Come a tripping down the stairs, Pretty Peggy-o
Come a tripping down the stairs, Pretty Peggy-o
Come a tripping down the stair, tie up your yellow hair
Bid a last farewell to handsome Willy-o

If ever I return, Pretty Peggy-o
If ever I return, Pretty Peggy-o
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
Our captain, he is dead, Pretty Peggy-o
Our captain he is dead, he died for a maid
And he's buried in Louisiana county-o
