Mickey Newbury - "Danny Boy" lyrics

The valley is hushed
The flowers are all dying
The meadow is white
With the winter snow

Lord as I stand at the place where Dannys lyin'
I say a silent prayer somehow I know
He hears me there though soft I tread above him
Somebody sleeps in peace
His Danny Boys' come home
The pipes the pipes are callin'
From to glen to glen
And down the mountain side
The summers gone
And all the leaves are falling
Its you its you must go and I must bide

Oh come ye back
When the sun shines on the meadow
Or when the valley is hushed white with snow
For I'll be here in sunshine and in shadow
Oh Danny Boy Oh Danny Boy
I love you so
