Song of the Day #4,391: ‘Peggy Day’ – Bob Dylan

Here’s a sweet little throwaway track from Bob Dylan’s 1969 Nashville Skyline, possibly the most laid back album of his career.

Ironically, Dylan chose to release a gentle country album during one of the country’s most tumultuous eras. Whether it was a deliberate retreat from his protest singer roots or just where his muse happened to take him, it was as odd and unexpected as most of Dylan’s career moves.

[Verse 1]
Peggy Day stole my poor heart away
By golly, what more can I say?
Love to spend the night with Peggy Day

[Verse 2]
Peggy Night makes my future look so bright
Man, that girl is out of sight
Love to spend the day with Peggy Night

[Bridge]
Well, ya’ know that even before I learned her name
Ya’ know I loved her just the same
And I tell ’em all, wherever I may go
Just so they’ll know, that she my little lady
And I love her so

[Verse 3]
Peggy Day stole my poor heart away
Turned my skies to blue from gray
Love to spend the night with Peggy Day

[Pedal Steel Solo]

[Verse 1]
Peggy Day stole my poor heart away
By golly, what more can I say?
Love to spend the night with Peggy Day
Love to spend the night with Peggy Day
