Danny boy (Audio)

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
It's you, it's 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
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so!


And come ye back when all the flowers' dying,
when I am dead, as dead I well may be
ye'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
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
and I shall sleep in peace until ye come to me.
