Oh, Peggy Gordon, you are my darling,
Come, sit ye down upon my knee,
And tell to me the very reason,
That I am slighted so by thee.

I'm deep in love and I can't deny it,
My heart lies smothered in my breast;
It's not for you to let the world know,
That a troubled mind has no rest.

I put my back up against an oak tree,
I thought it was a trusty tree;
But first it bent and then was broken,
And that is how my love served me.

Oh, Peggy Gordon, you are my darling,
Come sit ye down upon my knee,
And tell to me the very reason,
That I am slighted so by thee.

I think I'll go to some lonesome valley,
Where womankind can ne'er be found;
And the prettiest little birds will change their voices,
And every moment a different sound.

Oh, Peggy Gordon, you are my darling,
Come, sit ye down upon my knee,
And tell to me the very reason,
That I am slighted so by thee.
That I am slighted so by thee.
