The valley is hushedThe flowers are all dyingThe meadow is white with the winter snowLord as I stand at the place where daddies lyingI say a silent prayer and somehow I knowHe hears me there, though soft I tread above himSo now he sleeps in peaceHis danny boy’s come home................. the pipes the pipe are callingFrom glen to glen and down the moutainsideThe summers gone and all the leaves are fallingIts you, it’s you must go and I must bideO come ye back when the sun shines on the meadowOr when the valley’s hushed and white with snowFor I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadowOh danny boy, oh danny boy I love you soI close my eyes and still I can seeHim standing there on the hillTears filled his eyes as he waved goodbye to meI can’t forget, I guess I never willHe said, the valley is hushedThe flowers are all dyingThe meadow is white with the winter snowCome find the placeWhere you know that I’ll be lyingSay a silent prayerSo I’ll know
