Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are callin' From glenn to glenn, and down the mountain side The summer's gone, and all the roses dyin' 'Tis you, 'tis 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 'Tis 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 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 though soft you tread above me And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be If you will bend and tell me that you love me Then I shall sleep in peace, until you come to me
