Intro: 

G D G C G D G C G 

verse 1 
G 
There once was a troop o' Irish dragoons, 
                          D 
Cam marching doon through Fyvie-o. 
        G                             C 
And the captain's fa'en in love wi' a very bonnie lass, 
        G          D              G   C G 
And her name it is cried, "pretty Peggy-o". 

verse 2 
G 
There's many a bonnie lass in the howe o' Auchterless. 
                                  D 
There's many a bonnie lass in the Garioch. 
        G                         C 
There's many a bonnie Jean in the streets o' Aiberdeen, 
        G               D          G   C G 
But the floower o' them aw lies in Fyvie-o. 

verse 3 
G 
O' come doon the stair, pretty Peggy, my dear, 
                            D 
Come doon the stair, pretty Peggy-o. 
G                         C 
Come doon the stair, bind up your yellow hair, 
      G        D             G   C G 
Tak a last fareweell o' your daddy-o. 

verse 4 
G 
Then up cries the colonel, "mount, boys, mount!", 
                              D 
"Tarry!" says the captain, "O-tarry-o!". 
  G                      C 
O-tarry for a while, for another day or twa, 
      G           D                G   C G 
Til I see if this bonnie lass will marry-o. 

Verse 5 
G 
Twas in the early morning, when we marched awa, 
                       D 
O' but the captain was sorry-o. 
    G                            C 
The drums they did beat o'er the bonnie braes o' Gight, 
    G                D           G   C G 
The pipes played the lowlands of Fyvie-o. 

Verse 6 
G 
Alang 'ere we come tae auld Meldrum toon, 
                      D 
We had our captain to carry-o. 
 G                     C 
Alang 'ere we come, to bonnie Aiberdeen, 
   G       D          G  C G 
We had our captain to bury-o. 

Verse 7 
G 
Green grow the birks on bonnie Ythanside, 
                        D 
Low lie the lowlands of Fyvie-o. 
    G                             C 
The captain's name was Ned and he died for a maid, 
   G            D              G   C G 
He died for the chambermaid of Fyvie-o. 

Verse 8 
G 
I never did intend a soldier's lady for to be, 
                     D 
I never will marry a soldier-o. 
  G                       C 
I never did intend to gae tae a foreign land, 
      G          D       G    C  G 
And I never will marry a soldier-o. 

Verse 9 
G 
It's braw, aye it's braw, a captain's lady for to be, 
                       D 
Braw to be a captain's lady-o. 
  G                       C 
Braw to rant and roam, to follow at his word, 
    G              D             G   C G 
And ride when your captain he is ready-o.
