Danny Boy

Lyricist: Frederick Edward Weatherly     Composer: Rory Dall O'Cahan 
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are cal
ling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain s
ide
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are
dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide

But come you back when summer's in the mea
dow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with
snow
'Tis I'll be there in sunshine or in shado
w
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so

And if you come, when all the flowers are
dying
And 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, tho' soft you tread abov
e me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you lov
e me
I simply sleep in peace until you come to
me

I simply sleep in peace until you come to
me
