1. Oh, Peggy Gordon, you are my darling|
Come sit you down upon my knee
And tell me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee.
2. I'm so in love that I can't deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But it's not for you to let the world know it
A troubled mind can know no rest.
3. I put my head to a glass of brandy|
It was fancy I do declare
For when I'm drinkin', I'm always thinkin'
And wishing Peggy Gordon was here.
4. I wish I was in some lonesome valley
Where womankind cannot be found
Where the little birds sing upon the branches
And every moment a different sound.
