Peggy Quotes

By telling Jimmy Massey's life story, and by the profound way you shaped your lyrics, you have made him so close we must see he is undeniably us--who we are and why we are. I want to express my gratitude to him for telling his story, and to you for giving me a way to connect with his story and my own heart as I share his message with others. Thank you. Suzanna Hough

Peggy Quotes 2

Seeger the folk singer from New York, offers us a remarkably unique style on this song; her vocals bend, twist and turn shaving off any kind of traditional approach to her genres. The beats and guitars compliment Peggy’s soft and laid back melodies.

Fatal Flower Garden

FATAL FLOWER GARDEN                   
traditional U.S.A.

It rained, it poured, it rained so hard,
Rained so hard all day.
That all the boys in our school
Came out to toss and play.

They tossed their ball again so high,
Then again so low;
They tossed into a flower garden
Where no one was allowed to go.

Up stepped a beautiful lady
All dressed in yellow and green;
Come in, come in, my pretty little boy
And get your ball again.

I won’t come in, I shan’t come in
Without my playmates all;
I’ll go to my father and tell him about it,
That’ll cause tears to fall.

She first showed him an apple seed,
Then a guinea gold ring;
Then she showed him a diamond,
And that enticed him in.

She took him by his lily white hand
She led him through the hall;
She put him into an upper room
Where no one could hear him call.

O, take these finger-rings off my fingers,
Smoke them with your breath;
If any of my friends should call for me,
Tell them that I’m at rest.

Tether the Bible at my head,
The Testament at my feet,
If my dear mother should call for me,
Tell her that I’m asleep.

Tether the Bible at my feet,
The Testament at my head;
If my dear father should call for me,
Tell him that I am dead.
