Danny Boy

Danny Boy

O Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountainside
The summer's gone and all the roses dying
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 hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
O Danny boy, O Danny boy, I love you so

And when you come and all the flowers are dying
If 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, though soft your tread above me
And all my grave shall warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me
Of all the Irish folk songs Danny Boy is perhaps the most popular or close to it. Along with wonderul Irish songs
Irish jewelry goes well with a traditional Irish song.  Irish necklaces are among the more popular of Irish jewelry.
The Irish necklace ranges from a Celtic knot to a shamrock style necklace.
