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.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hush and white with snow,
And I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow,
Oh, Danny Boy, oh, Danny Boy, I love you so!
Listen to Bob Johnson on 5-string banjo play this song with Bill McElhiney's Orchestra
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
