Peggy-O (Live at Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum, New Haven, CT, May 10, 1978) 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]
Will you marry me, pretty Peggy-O?
Will you marry me, pretty Peggy-O?
If you will marry me, I will set your cities free
And free all the people in the area-O

[Verse 3]
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

[Verse 4]
What would your mama think, pretty Peggy-O?
What would your mama think, pretty Peggy-O?
What will your mama think if she heard my guineas clink?
Saw mе marching at the head of my soldiers-O

[Instrumental Break]
[Verse 5]
If еver I return, pretty Peggy-O
If ever I return, pretty Peggy-O
If ever I return, all your cities I will burn
And free all the people in the area-O

[Verse 6]
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
Bid a last farewell to your William-O

[Verse 8]
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

[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
