Lyrics

O welcome and acclaimed is she, my love
Dear to my soul, a thousand told, is Peggy Lettermore

Rise up, dear Peggy and stand up on the height
Count all your cattle and make sure they're all there

O welcome and acclaimed is she, my love
Dear to my soul, a thousand told, is Peggy Lettermore

I have Brid and I have Kate but Peggy is the best of all
Whichever man wins her hand, a lucky man he will be

O welcome and acclaimed is she, my love
Dear to my soul, a thousand told, is Peggy Lettermore

I sent a message west to her, that I would buy a large boat
She sent a message back to me that a medium sized sailing boat would do

O welcome and acclaimed is she, my love
Dear to my soul, a thousand told, is Peggy Lettermore

The Galway fishermen are sailing from the east with a fair wind
With the light of a bright moon in order to see the "jewel"

O welcome and acclaimed is she, my love
Dear to my soul, a thousand told, is Peggy Lettermore

And here is the original Gaelic version of Peggy Lettermore.
