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

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

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
