The valley is hushed, the flowers are all dying
The meadow is white with the winter snow
Lord as I stand at the place where daddies lying
I say a silent prayer

And somehow I know he hears me there
Though soft I tread above him
So now he sleeps in peace
His Danny boy's come home

The pipes the pipe are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountainside
The summers gone and all the leaves are falling
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide

Oh, come ye back when the sun shines on the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
For I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh, Danny boy, Oh, Danny boy I love you so

I close my eyes and still I can see
Him standing there on the hill
Tears filled his eyes as he waved goodbye to me
I can't forget, I guess I never will

He said, the valley is hushed, the flowers are all dying
The meadow is white with the winter snow
Come find the place where you know that I'll be lying
Say a silent prayer so I'll know
