1. Danny Boy

From the recording Danny Boy


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
