Lyrics

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
The Summer's gone, and all the roses falling
It's you, it's you, must go and I must bide

But come ye back, when Summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
And I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy I love you so

But when ye come, and all the flowers dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an Ave there for me

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my grave shall warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me
