Lyrics

(Source: Sean-Nós Nua)

Ah, 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,
But it's not for you to let the world know it.
A troubled mind can know no rest.
I put my head to a glass of brandy.
It was my fancy, I do declare,
For when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
And wishing Peggy Gordon was here.
I wish I was in some lonesome valley
Where womankind could not be found,
Where the little birds sing on the branches,
And every moment, a different sound.
Ah, 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.
