[Roud 545; G/D 1:84; Ballad Index SBoA020; Bodleian Roud 545; Wiltshire 971; trad.]. The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie is a traditional Scottish folk song about a thwarted romance between a soldier and a girl. There is no strict version of the lyrics and the song has multiple variants including Handoms Polly-O, Peggy-O, Fennario, and The Maid of Fife. The Americanized variant is usually called "Peggy-O".

[Verse One - Bonnie Lass of Fyvie]
There once was a troop o' Irish dragoons
Cam marching doon through Fyvie-o
And the captain's fa'en in love wi' a very bonnie lass
And her name it was ca'd pretty Peggy-o
