I must say that I think you are are about the most authentic person I have ever seen on stage - you were just you - warm, intelligent, natural and funny - it was like sitting in your living room. Seems funny to even call it a concert. - Leo

Peggy Quotes 2

I was at Cambridge Folk Festival this year, and you were my highlight!  Listening to you talk and sing about the importance of making conscious life decisions and the impact our seemingly isolated, individual decisions have on the rest of the world really resonated with me, as did your quiet approach to advocating for justice.  I was deeply moved, and it was a joy to listen to you.
Thank you so much.

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.
