Grateful Dead - Peggy-O 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.
