about

This is an old Scottish air, and featured here are the Singology choir, arranged by me and Toni Robinson, and conducted by their leader Toni Robinson. Check out the choir and what they do at www.singology.com. They're superstars! Andy Adams on the drums, and Jim Gipson on additional backing vocals.

lyrics

Oh 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’m so in love, I can’t deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But it’s not for you to let the world know
A troubled mind can find no rest

I dun put my head to a cask of brandy
Such is my fancy to declare
That when I’m drinking, I’m seldom thinking
Or wishing Peggy Gordon was here

I wish I was in a lonesome valley
Where womenkind cannot be found
And pretty birds they change their voices
With every moment a different sound

I wish I was away in Ingo
Far across the briny sea
And sailing over the deepest ocean
Where love nor care ever bothered me

Oh 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

Oh 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

Slim's new LP is a barn-storming folk-rock romp through tales of love, loss, booze and madness.
