Oh[C] Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are[F] calling
From glen to[C] glen, and down the mountain[G] side
The summer's[C] gone, and all the flowers are[F] dying
'tis you, 'tis[C] you must [G]go and I must [C]bide.

But[C7] come you[F] back when[G] summer's in the [C]meadow
Or[C7] when the[F] valley's[G] hushed and white with snow
'tis I'll be[C] there in[F] sunshine or in[C] sha[Am]dow
Oh Danny[C] boy, oh Danny[F] boy, I[G] love you[C] so.

And if you come, when 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 shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

Danny Boy In The Key Of G Major
 
Oh[G] Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are[C] calling
From glen to[G] glen, and down the mountain[D] side
The summer's[G] gone, and all the flowers are[C] dying
'tis you, 'tis[G] you must [D]go and I must [G]bide.

But[G7] come you[C] back when[D] summer's in the [G]meadow
Or[G7] when the[C] valley's[D] hushed and white with snow
'tis I'll be[G] there in[C] sunshine or in[G] sha[Em]dow
Oh Danny[G] boy, oh Danny[C] boy, I[D] love you[G] so.
