Danny Boy

Text: Frederic Weatherly, 1910
Melodie: Londonderry Air (Traditional)
1. Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling
'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.
2. 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 shall I hear tho' soft your tread above me,
And all my grave shall warmer, sweeter, be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
