    Holly wrote this about Peggy Sue Gerron, who was dating Holly's drummer with The Crickets, Jerry Allison. Holly was not involved with Peggy Sue, but liked the name for the song. Allison and Peggy Sue eventually got married, but divorced 11 years later. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=1167
