8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I grow tired of a song, If it lingers too long, And roses I've plucked and thrown a way,
But still I never change my tune, When we are strolling 'neath the moon,
Pretty Peg can't you see heaven sent you to me, I need you much more than I can say,
I know I'm aiming high, But a dreamer can try, So why can't I, Just dream and sigh my love song!
Peg O' My Heart I love you, Don't let us part, I love you, I always knew, It would be you,
Since I heard your lilting laughter, It's your Irish heart I'm after.
Peg O' My Heart, Your glances make my heart say "How's chances?"
Come be my own, Come make your home in my heart.
