Celtic Woman - Danny Boy 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 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 hushed and white with snow
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
[Live version:] And 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 flow'rs 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 you tread above me
And all my grave will 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.

    I love Celtic woman, Wish i could sing as lovely as they do. God made them Angels of music.. My husband and I enjoy them on PBS. Makes me wish I could have gotten lost intentionally in the British Isles to paint the beauty. I am Irish one quarter ( full) in my heart). Angliophile to the deepest part of 'me' heart.I love the traditional and the Rock music . Enya and U2. Bagpipe pennywhistle and drums. i went once, too short of a visit.My ancestors are from Wexford, came over due to the famine.Happy New Year to all, be safe and pray for America to come to it's senses. Thank God for the great music to have coped for the past 3 years. If my dad were alive he wouldn't like the times we are in. Unfortunately his name is Don. I wonder if 'Danny' would have been more appropriate.I am glad he got me to Ireland.Thank you dad for the Irish connection. Peace to all, may the road meet you down a road hearing Danny boy as beautiful as this.

  26. Doogle Ticker

    According to Dr. Bryan Sykes from Oxford University, after many genetic studies, England in approx. 85% Celtic, and the percentage grows in Scotland, Wales, and Ireland (N+S). Aye, we are almost all Celts. So I forgive those Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Normand invaders...they never did kill our collective culture...which makes this music special to most of us. My precious...

    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 hushed and white with snow,
    It's 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 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 you tread above me,
    And all my grave will 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!

  49. Tobias Koo

    So similar to raise me up

  50. Doogle Ticker

    I don't care if some people think whites cannot dance. We have a culture that, now, is very rarely racist. So, now, discover "white" culture...

  51. roger silver

    Beautifully sung, pretty lassies, crystal clear voices. When they started singing I felt my senses melt. A tear drop may have fallen due to the dust in my room....

    The cameraman is in love with Lynn, and so am I.

  53. Dai Cap


  54. Josir Cavalcanti

    Há uma versão em Português, mas nada a ver com o original; fala da mansão dos bem-aventurados, o "céu"

  55. Lily Boonie

    This song is so beautiful it still makes me tear up from hearing it, I in no way gave justice to this song in solo and ensemble last year.

  86. Mr. Natural

    Anyone else want to stick a screwdriver in their ears listening to the Celtic Women? I absolutely love the songs, but they’re voices and cookie-cutter perfection destroy any bit of heart and soul in the music.

  87. Nicholas Ramsay

    This made me cry.

  88. Maddy Niman

    This is my favorite version of this song I can’t even listen to any other one because all I want is this one...it’s absolutely beautiful.

  89. Drachona The Wolf

  90. Moni Dobrinova

    Vun Djenduri

  91. Moni Dobrinova


  92. andrea debonair Freeorbit

    Ahhh, brought tears to my eyes. SO beautiful.

  93. Pigeon

    I'm sick of all the irish people saying how this song is so dear to them because of their heritage.. You do realize It was written by Fredrick Weatherly, who was British... This song pertains to Ireland in no way at all


    The lyrics were written by a British man, but I believe the melody was Irish. I could be wrong, though.

    Dominic Ramirez

    The Melody is a Irish Melody with the words writton by a British man to be exact

  94. Milk -

    I played this for our spring concert in a price called Celtic air and dance No.2 by Michael Sweeney
