Chantal Kreviazuk – Danny Boy lyrics

Words & music: unknown

** during her concert in hamilton, on, chantal performed this old irish tune in honor of st. patrick's day. these are the traditional lyrics to the song, and are not accurate to chantal's version. **

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 flowers are dying
'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

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 I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me

I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me
