Bonnie Lass of Fenario D Bm F#m G D As we marched down to Fenario (2x) G D Bm Our captain feel in love with a lady like a dove D Bm F#m G D And the name she was called was pretty Peggy-o Come go along with me, Pretty Peggy-o (2x) In coaches you will ride with your true love by your side Just as grand as any lady in the areo What would your mother think, Pretty Peggy-o (2x) What would your mother think for to hear the guineas clink And the soldiers all a marching before you o You're the man that I adore, Handsome Willi-o (2x) You're the man that I adore, but your fortune is too low I'm afraid my mother would be angry-o Come a tripping down the stairs, Pretty Peggy-o (2x) Come a tripping down the stair, tie up your yellow hair Bid a last farewell to handsome Willy-o If ever I return, Pretty Peggy-o (2x) If ever I return, The city I will burn And destroy all the ladies in the areo Our captain, he is dead, Pretty Peggy-o Our captain he is dead, he died for a maid And he's buried in Louisiana county-o recorded by Joan Baez on her Ballad Book and by Judy Collins on Golden Apples SOF
