Oh, Dan -ny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are ca -ll -ing,
From glen to glen, and down the moun -tain side,
The sum -mer's gone, and all the ro -ses fa -ll -ing,
It's you it's you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when sum -mer's in the me -a -dow,
Or when the val -ley's hush and white with snow,
And I'll be there in sun -shine or in sh -a -dow,
Oh, Dan -ny Boy, oh, Dan -ny Boy, I love you so!
Listen to Bob Johnson on 5-string banjo play this song with Bill McElhiney's Orchestra
