Peggy Lettermore
(Trad)
Tá Peig agom, tá Cáit agom, ach Peig an bean is fearr
'Cbe faer Gheabhfas í nach air a bhfeás anttadh

Ó ghuairm í 's guairim í go deo
Sí grá mo chroí mo bhurnín í sí Peigín Leitirmór

Tá iscaraigh na h'iarrthartha in greim an Ghotán mhoie
Agus scríothim aisteach is gheobhfam leath-bhód sheoil

Ó ghuairm í 's guairim í go deo
Sí grá mo chroí mo bhurnín í sí Peigín Leitirmór

Tá iascaraigh na Gaillimhe ag theacht anall le chóir
Is solas geallaigh gilte bí go ligadis a shaoil

Ó ghuairm í 's guairim í go deo
Sí grá mo chroí mo bhurnín í sí Peigín Leitirmór

Éirigh suas a Pheggy agus sheas ar bharr an árd
Chóirigh do chuid buillán agus féach an bhfuil síad ann

Ó ghuairm í 's guairim í go deo
Sí grá mo chroí mo bhurnín í sí Peigín Leitirmór
