Verse:
I grow tired of a song If it lin -gers too long, And ros -es I've plucked and thrown a way,
But still I -nev -er change my tune, When we are stroll -ing 'neath the moon,
Pret -ty Peg can't you see heav -en sent you to me, I need you much more than I can say,
I know I'm aim -ing high But a dream -er can try, So why can't I Just dream and sigh my love song!
 
Chorus:
Peg O' My Heart I love you, Don't let us part, I love you, I al -ways knew, It would be you,
Since I heard your lilt -ing laugh -ter, It's your I -rish heart I'm af -ter.
Peg O' My Heart, Your glanc -es make my heart say "How's chanc -es?"
Come, be my own Come, make your home in my heart.
