Danny Boy
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


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 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
But when ye come and all the roses falling
And I am dead as dead I well may be
Go out and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ave there for me

And I will hear tho' soft you tread above me
And then my grave will warm and sweeter be
For you shall bend and tell me that you love me
And I will sleep in peace until you come to me

Lyrics

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 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

But when ye come and all the roses falling
And I am dead as dead I well may be
Go out and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ave there for me

And I will hear tho' soft you tread above me
And then my grave will warm and sweeter be
For you shall bend and tell me that you love me
And I will sleep in peace until you come to me.

Fred E Weatherly (1848-1929)
Lyrics written on the death of his son in 1910, to a traditional tune "The Londonderry Air".

As a full blooded Irish man who has heard this song sung hundreds of times by family and friends at weddings funerals and every other occasion when Irish people gather togather to sing, I can honestly say I have never heard it sung better and with more feeling than sung here by Eva .

@EBOJFM DBOOJOH don't worry. i am jewish and all my grandparents came to America and i never wanted to be Irish... we can all agree this woman has a beautiful voice a her rendition is otherworldly. My first love was from Dublin though.

We laid my dad to rest today. One of many Covid casualties.......He used to sing this to me as a kid. Proper Dubliner my dad and I am so proud that I share his blood

I laid my dad to rest this past weekend, thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. My cousin playing the organ in church, and his daughter singing Oh Danny Boy. So sorry to all who have lost their father.
