O 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 am so deep 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 find no rest

I leaned myself on a cask of whiskey

It was my fancy, I do declare

For when I?m drinking, I?m always thinking

Wishing Peggy Gordon was there

I wished I was in a lonesome valley

Where womankind cannot be found

where all the birds do change their voices

And every moment a different sound

I wish I was away in Ingo

Far away across the sea

Sailing over deepest waters

Where love nor care never trouble me
