Paddy Schmidt – Peggy Gordon lyrics

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 canґt deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But itґs 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 Iґm drinking, Iґm 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
