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

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

But if you come and all the flowers are dying
If 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 will know, though soft you tread above me
And then my grave will warmer, sweeter be
And you'll bend down and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.

Songwriters
HUNTER, NIGEL/BRUCE, DUNCAN/NUTTER, ALICE/WATTS, LOUISE
