Danny Boy Johnny cash

One of Ireland's greatest songs, 'Danny Boy,' turned 100 in 2013.

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 roses falling. It's you, It's you, must go, and I must bide..

Danny boy is talking of the decease and the pipes are the angles singing, down the mountain side, your time is up. you are leaving but i must stay

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow. Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow. I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow Oh Danny Boy, oh Danny Boy, I love you so.

i'll think of you when it's summer time, or when the valley is filled with snow. i'll be here threw the winter and the summer.

But if you come, and 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.

if you come and i'm dead just kneel down at my grave and say a prayer for me.

And I will know, tho' soft ye tread above me, And then my grave will richer, sweeter be. And you'll bend down and tell me that you love me And I will rest in peace until you come to me.

i will know when you've come, you'll bend down say a prayer and tell me of the love and relationship we built and to rest in peace until you
