Fennario

I like all the versions of this Scottish folk tune. This video features The Deep Dark Woods, who perform it in the key of C. I like the inclusion of the Em and Am. Pick up your guitar and play along.



These were the words and chords I found on the internet, the Grateful Dead version. However this song has multiple variations, find your favorite.

Fennario - C Deep Dark Woods, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan etc etc G C G As we marched out to Fennario G G/F# Em Bm As we marched out to Fennario C G Our Captain fell in love G G/F# Em With a lady like a dove G C G And he called her by name, Pretty Peggy-O Would you marry me, pretty Peggy-O? Would you marry me, pretty Peggy-O? If you would marry me, I would set your cities free Free all the ladies in the are-o I would marry you, sweet William-O I would marry you, sweet William-O I would marry you but your Guineas are too few And I fear my mama would be angry-o What would your mama think, pretty Peggy-O What would your mama think, pretty Peggy-O If she heard my Guineas clink? Saw me marching at the head of my soilders-o. Come a-steppin down the stairs, pretty Peggy-O Come a-steppin down the stairs, pretty Peggy-O Come a-steppin down the stairs Combin' back your yellow hair Bid a last farewell to your William-O For if ever I return, pretty Peggy-O If ever I return, pretty Peggy-O If ever I return All your cities I will burn Destroy all the ladies in the are-o Sweet William he is dead, pretty Peggy-O Sweet William he is dead, pretty Peggy-O Sweet William he is dead, And he died for a maid And he's buried in Louisiana country-O
