Frank Turner lyrics : "peggy sang the blues"

Peggy came to me in my sleep


In the middle of the night, on a Friday night, last week


She whispered, "Hush child and don't be scared

I got me a few words of wisdom that I came back to share"



And she said

"It doesn't matter where you come from

It matters where you go

No one gets remembered

For the things they didn't do"



I said, "Peggy won't you stay here for awhile?

We can drink whiskey, we can play cards and we can get wild"

She said, "We can play poker and we'll play for keeps

I only play angels lately and they never let me cheat"



It doesn't matter where you come from

It matters where you go

And no one gets remembered in this listless life

For the things they didn't do



And you could say I had a good start

And you could say I had class

And you could say that I was born

Beneath the ceiling made of glass



But I always kept an open house

And yeah, always did right by my friends

And when it comes to Saint Peter's gate

I told the people remember one who needs to make amends



'Cause better times are coming

Better times ahead

And no one gets remembered

My deathless child, don't rest too long in bed



And Peggy said

"It doesn't matter where you come from

It matters where you go

No one gets remembered in this listless, loveless life

For the things they didn't do, now, now, now, now, now"



Peggy sang the blues, I've been drifting off

Peggy sang the blues as I've drifted off

Well, Peggy sang the blues 'cause I drifted off

Well, Peggy sang the blues, Peggy sang the blues
