  Bob Dylan recording session 2, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 20.nov.1961  

Been around this whole country but i never yet found Fenario

Well as we marched down
As we marched down
Well as we marched down to Fenario
Well the captain fell in love
With a lady like a dove
The 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 goin' away
You're never never never comin' back-io.

Come a runnin' down your stairs
Come a runnin' down your stairs
Come a runnin' down your stairs Pretty Peggy-o
Come a runnin' down your stairs
Combin' back your yellow hair
You're the prettiest darn girl i ever seen-io.

The lieutenant he is gone
The lieutenant he is gone
The lieutenant he is gone Pretty Peggy-o
The lieutenant he is gone
Long gone
He's ridin' down in Texas with the rodeo.

Well the captain he is dead
Our captain he is dead
Our captain he is dead Pretty Peggy-o
Well the captain he is dead
He died for a maid
He's buried somewheres in Louisiana-o.  up

  Live, Carnegie Chapter Hall, NYC - 4.nov.1961  

Well as we marched down
As we marched down
As we marched down to Fenario
Well the captain fell in love
With a lady like a dove
And the name that she had was pretty Peggy-O.

What will your mother say?
What will your mother say?
What will your mother say? pretty Peggy-O
What will your mother say?
Do you know you're going away.
You'll never be back in the country-O.

Well the captain he is gone,
The captain he is gone,
The captain he is gone, pretty Peggy-O.
Well the captain he is gone.
He's gone far from home,
He's gone somewhere with the rodeo.

Well the captain he is dead,
The captain he is dead,
The captain he is dead, pretty Peggy-O.
Well the captain he is dead,
He died four days ago,
He's buried somewhere in Louisiana-O.

Well where did you all go,
Where did you all go,
Where did you all go, pretty Peggy-O?
Some say you've gone away,
And may be back some day, some day,
Some say you've gone away with the pony-o.  up
