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

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

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

I laid my head on a cask of brandy,
It was my fancy I do declare;
For when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking,
And wishin' Peggy Gordon were here.

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

I wish I was in some lonesome valley,
Where woman kind can ne'er be found;
And the pretty little birds do change their voices,
And every moment a different sound.

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