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 flow'rs are dying
Its 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 bare or white with snow
Yes, I'll be here in sunshine or in shadows
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so

(Bridge)

But, come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's bare or white with snow
Yes, I'll be here in sunshine or in shadows
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so
