Pretty Peggy-O (live: 1996-07-02: Mozartsall, Mannheim, Germany) - Lyrics

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 Fennario
Well, our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove
Her 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 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, he died for a maid
He's buried somewheres in Louisiana-O

Writer(s): Bob Dylan
