Danny Boy

shamrockI enjoy this song so much, I would have named my second son after it. That was the deal, if Michelle had been a boy, I'd have been given the privilege of naming him. As it turned out Michelle was a girl and Taryn got to name her and the world was spared another Daniel Boon.

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
'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

And when ye come, and all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
Ye'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 shall warmer, sweeter be
For you shall bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me

Here are three gifted singers who have all kissed the Blarney Stone, singing Danny Boy.
