TOMMY MAKEM


The Maid Of Fife-e-o Lyrics

There once was a troop of Irish Dragoons
Come marching down through Fife-e-o
And the captain fell in love with a very bonny lass
And her name it was called pretty Peggy-o
There's many a bonny lass in the town of Augherlass
There's many a bonny lassie in the Jeery-o
There's many a bonny Jean in the streets of Aberdeen
But the flower of them all is in Fife-e-o
'Oh, come down the stairs pretty Peggy my dear
Oh, come down the stairs pretty Peggy-o
Oh, come down the stairs, comb back your yellow hair
Bid a long farewell to your mammy-o'
'Oh, I'll give you ribbons love and I'll give you gold
I'll give you a necklace of amber-o
And I'll give you petticoats wi' flounces to your knees

If you will convey me to your chamber-o'
The colonel he cried 'mount, mount boys mount'
The captain he cried 'tarry-o
Oh tarry for a while, for another day or twa'
'Till I see if this bonny lass will marry-o'
'I never did intend a soldier's lady for to be
I never will marry a soldier-o
I never did intend to gang to a foreign land
And I never will marry a soldier-o'
Long 'ere we came to the town of Augerlass
We had our captain to carry-o
And long 'ere we reached the streets of Aberdeen
We had our captain to bury-o
Green grow the birks on bonny Eithan side
And low lie the lowlands of Fife-e-o
Oh, the captain's name was Ned and he died for a maid
He died for the chambermaid of Fife-e-o
