Peggy-O (Live at Philadelphia Civic Center, Philadelphia, PA, August 4-5, 1974) lyrics

by

Grateful Dead


[Verse 1]
As we rowed out to Fennario
As we rowed out to Fennario
Our captain fell in love
With a lady like a dove
And he called her by name, pretty Peggy-O

[Verse 2]
Come steppin' down the stairs, pretty Peggy-O
Come steppin' down the stairs, pretty Peggy-O
Come steppin' down the stairs, combing back your yellow hair
Prettiest lady in the area-O

[Verse 3]
Will you marry me, pretty Peggy-O?
Will you marry me, pretty Peggy-O?
Will you marry me? I will set your cities free
And free all the people in the area-O

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 4]
I would marry you, sweet William-O
I would marry you, sweet William-O
Well, I would marry you but your guineas are too few
And I fear my mama would be angry-O

[Verse 5]
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-O

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 6]
If ever I return, pretty Peggy-O
If ever I return, pretty Peggy-O
If ever I return, all your cities I will burn
Destroy all the people in the area-O

[Outro]
As we rowed out to Fennario
As we rowed out to Fennario
Our captain fell in love
With a lady like a dove
And he called her by name, pretty Peggy-O
