Spoken intro:
I've been around this whole country
But I never yet found Fennario.

Well, as we marched down, as we marched down
Well, as we marched down to Fennerio'
Well, our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove
The name that she had was pretty Peggy-O

Well, what will your mother say, what will your mother say
What will your mother say, pretty Peggy-O
What will your mother say to know you're going away
You're never, never, never coming back-io?

Come a-running down your stairs
Come a-running down your stairs
Come a-running down your stairs, pretty Peggy-O
Come a-running down your stairs
Combing back your yellow hair
You're the prettiest darned girl I ever seen-io.

The lieutenant he has gone
The lieutenant he has gone
The lieutenant he has gone, pretty Peggy-O
The lieutenant he has gone, long gone
He's a-riding down in Texas with the rodeo.

Well, our captain he is dead, our captain he is dead
Our captain he is dead, pretty Peggy-O
Well, our captain he is dead, died for a maid
He's buried somewhere in Louisiana-O.
