DANNY BOY


Written by Frederick Edward Weatherly 
(Recorded Oct. 5, 1960 and Jan. 30, 1961) 



Oh Danny Boy the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glenn to glenn and down the mountain side
The summer's gone and all the flowers dyin'
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 bare* or white with snow
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadows
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so

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

*The word sounds like "bare" when Jim sings this verse. However, the traditional lyrics are "hushed".
