Oh Danny Boy (Audio Sample and Lyrics)

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 ye come 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!

But when ye come,
When all the flow'rs are dying
And I am gone,
As gone I well may be
You'll come and find
The place where I am lying
And kneel and say a prayer there for me.

And I shall hear,
though soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm
And sweeter be
If you will only tell me
That you love me,
Then I will sleep in peace
Until you come to me.
